Pompeii was destroyed when the nearby
, supposedly extinct volcano called mount
Vesuvis erupted in AD 74, covering the town and
its inhabits in many tones of pumice and ash.
Italys most acclaimed archaeologist Giuseeppe Fiorelli made
The ruins at Pompeii were first discovered late in the 16th century
by the architect Domenenico Fontana.
These are some of the discovery's that they help find.
It was actually the discovery of a nearby town called
Herculaneum, a city that had also been destroyed by
mount Vesuviu’s, Pompeii was later found years after

statuary also people can view them in the exhibition
This has taught me how important that archeologists
really are to our life and if we did not have them we
would not have all of these wonderful topics to study.
