A lot of these photos have dull colours, but you have to remember the whole of Pompeii was buried under at least 19 feet of ash and volcanic debris in a pyroclastic flow which travels at up to 150 mph. It was covered from 79AD until it was rediscovered in the late 16th century when excavations started.
Because it was buried so quickly and completely, so much of the ancient city was well preserved.
|These boulders were to help people cross the roads when they flooded. They were not speed bumps as one person in our group asked!!|
|Brothels were not only legal but encouraged. The phallus was a sign of good luck and on a lot of doors, but if they were on street corners they pointed towards the nearest brothel.|
I hope you enjoyed the second part of the tour around Pompeii.
