A City Frozen in Time

79 AD was arguably the most important year in Roman history. First, the Colosseum was completed, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and an incredible example of Roman architecture, culture and might. Arguably more influential in our knowledge of Rome today though was the fateful tragedy of August 24th, 79 AD. On this day the imposing volcano that shadows the Bay of Naples erupted and destroyed many towns in its path including the then thriving ancient resort town of Pompeii. Home to about 20,000 people, the city was expecting a minor earthquake like that it was used to and is still common in the Naples area to this day. Instead though Vesuvius erupted and smothered the surrounding areas in ash. This ash was a disaster and killed thousands, but it preserved the people in their final moment of life. It also preserved houses, stadiums, and markets which allows us to have an incredibly detailed insight to life as it was 2 millennia ago.
