... And Excavatins Of Pompei

In my previous post I wrote about modern Pompei because many persons do not know that there are modern town over the antique Roman town today. The antique town is under 4 till 10 meters of earth and the excavations are not finished. It is difficult to continue them because modern persons built their houses and roads and villages over the antique settlings.

These villages and towns are different as Salerno, for example, because Salerno is built directly on the antique walls, modern houses grow from the antique as the roots.

The soil near Vesuvio was not in use for many times probably. Nobody remembered about Roman Pompei, about Roman Ercolano (there are 24 meters of earth after the eruption of 79 aC from that side where Ercolano is situated). On the right of the photo from Wikipedia. Pompei are about 10 km left-straight in the background from observer.

Today I wanted to show you some photos of antique Pompei made by it's visitors.
