Pompeii skull. Close-up of a skull recovered from the ruins of the Murecine hotel in Pompeii, Italy. Pompeii was a town of around 20,000 inhabitants when it was destroyed by an eruption of the nearby volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. The eruption buried the town under a layer of ash, which preserved the buildings, artifacts, artworks and human remains in excellent condition. Excavations of the site have provided a huge amount of information about life in Roman Italy. The area is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
