Just outside of Naples, at the foot of the great Mount Vesuvius, lies the city of Pompeii. The ancient Roman town was completely buried following the violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, where the remnants were largely preserved in ash until it was discovered and excavated in the 19th and 20th centuries.
