 The city of Pompeii, along with Herculaneum, was partially destroyed and buried under 13 to 20 ft of hot ash, pumice and mud in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.

It's a haunting place with perfectly preserved slices of ancient Roman life from a brothel to a hot food vendors stall.

Most startling and touching however are the remains of the inhabitants, some still crouching in despair as the hot ash of the eruption buried them alive.
