The Destruction and Rediscovery of Pompeii
In the year 79, Mount Vesuvius, a volcano located east of the modern-day city of Naples, erupted.
Vesuvius had erupted before, but this eruption was different. It ejected an enormous amount of ash which completely buried several towns and cities below the mountain.
Almost 2,000 years later, the largest of those cities, Pompeii, was rediscovered, and what archeologists found revolutionized our understanding of the ancient world.
