Ancient City Of Pompeii  

Have you heard of the ancient city of Pompeii? Pompeii was a huge and flourishing metropolis that was ruined when Mt. Vesuvius erupted, and killed a lot of its residents and left behind a completely preserved exemplar of ancient way of life.

Most people who have heard of the city of Pompeii do not know that there were in fact two metropolises that were ruined by Mt. Vesuvius' eruption -- one is the Pompeii, and Herculaneum was the second. Both of these two cities were entirely wrapped by volcanic ashes when the volcano burst hot mud and volcanic ash on the 24th of August, 79 AD.  

The two cities were not remembered until they were traced again in the year 1700s. For so many years, the two cities were totally buried. The archaeologist used the process of excavation to dig the buried ruins. It has been in progress for hundreds of years. In Pompeii, there are still a lot of places that has to be unveiled.

But before the explosion, Pompeii was a metropolis with 20,000 locals. In a lot of ways the city was truly progressive. It had interior running water, an auditorium for entertainment, a booming marketplace and an ordered government. The residences of the riches citizens show beautiful artworks, especially frescoes (which are painted pictures on the walls with the use of certain techniques) and an admiration for their gods as well as goddesses.

The city as well contained cobblestone streets, public baths, sidewalks and lots of private stores where its locals can buy almost everything they need.
