Caption

Preservation of a Roman villa. Kerosene flame being applied to a heat-resistant panel made of glass wool and aluminium expanded polyurethane. The panel will be used to protect the frescoes found in this Roman archaeological site, Vila Augustea. This is the villa of Augustus (63 BC-14 AD), the first Roman emperor. It was discovered in the 1930s, buried beneath layers of mud and ash that resulted from several eruptions of Mount Vesuvius. Photographed at Starza della Regina in Somma Vesuviana, near Naples, Italy.
