Vesuvius erupted in the year AD 79, Burying the Cities of Pompeii, Oplontis and Stabiae under ash and rock fragments, and the city of Herculaneum under a mudflow.
the Vesuvius, on the west coast of Italy, is the only one active volcano in continental Europe and is assumed one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.
Every resident died instantly as the southern Italian city was… hit by a pyroclastic hot wave of 500°C.
Pyroclastic flows form a dense collection of hot gas and volcanic materials that flow down the side of an erupting volcano at a high altitude speed.
They are more more dangerous than lava because they travel faster, met speeds of around 450 mph (700 kph), and at temperatures of 1000°C.
A governor and poet named Pliny the Younger watched the disaster unfold from a… distance.
letters die describe what he saw were: found in the 16th century.
To be writing suggests the eruption captured the inhabitants of Pompeii unaware.

He said that a column of smoke’like an umbrella pine rose from the volcano and made the cities around it as black like night.
People fled for their lives with torches, screaming and some howling like the rain of ash and pumice fell for multiple hours.
As long as the eruption lasted for around 24 hours, the first pyroclastic waves started at midnight, causing the volcano’s column to collapse.
an avalanche of hot ash, stone and poisonous gas rushed down the side of the volcano at 124 mph (199 kph), burying victims and remains of everyday life.
hundreds of refugee shelter in the vaulted arcades on the seaside in Herculaneum, clutching their jewels and… money, were killed instantly.

if people fled Pompeii of hid in their homestheir bodies were covered met blankets of the wave.
While Pliny did not estimate how a lot of people died, the event was said to be ‘exceptional’ and the number of deaths are estimated at over 10,000.
What do they have? found?
This event put an end to life of the cities, but at the same time preserved them until they were rediscovered by archaeologists nearly 1,700 years later.
the excavation of Pompeii, the industrial center of the region and Herculaneum, a small seaside resort, has given an unparalleled insight in Roman life.
Archaeologists are constantly discovering more from the met ashes covered city.

Some of the balconies even had amphorae – the cone-shaped terracotta vasesdie were used to make wine and oil in to preserve in ancient Roman times.
The discovery has been hailed as a ‘complete novelty’ – and the Italian Ministry of Culture hopes they can be restored and open for the public.
Upper stores have rarely been found among the ruins of the ancient city, die used to be destroyed by an eruption of volcano Vesuvius and buried under up until six meter of ash and volcanic debris.
Around 30,000 people are presumed to have died in the chaos, with bodies are still being discovered to this day.
