What you've been doing

Ancient Pompeii is in a decrepit heap at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius, which erupted in AD 79 and destroyed the town. Stones and ash buried it and it layed undiscovered until the 17th century. Excavation began in 1748 and a city was discovered buried in time. Buildings survived, often replete with painting and sculpture. Graffiti still on the walls.
