Transcript of POMPEII
Pompeii was an ancient Roman city, buried by a volcanic eruption. Two thousand years later, archaeologists uncovered the city.
Mt Vesuvius erupted Aug. 24, A.D. 79. The eruption was so big that it buried the whole of Pompeii.
The city of Pompeii was a popular vacation destination for the Romans. It is estimated that between ten thousand and twenty thousand people lived in the city. Many wealthy Romans had summer homes in Pompeii and would live there during the hot summer months
BEFORE THE ERUPTION
After the disastrous eruption of Mt Vesuvius, tens of thousands of people died.
AFTER THE ERUPTION

Sadly, the people buried in the eruption over time turned to stone. Some are still on streets of Pompeii and some, are in museums
