Europe 2006/07 - Pompeii

Location: Pompeii, Italy

We went from Venice to Naples - not much to see/do in Naples, but the main reason for going there was to visit Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast

We thought that this was a road, but it was more of a sewerage gutter with stepping stones to get people from one footpath to the other

One of the many plaster casts of a victim - this is where the plaster cast technique was originally pioneered

So yes, I would be standing in the middle of the sewerage stream if it was 70 BC

More victims - a terrible tragedy. The plaster cast is actually taken from the cavity that the bodies created in the ash/lava

These food shops were everywhere - especailly after being in Venice, you got a real feel for what daily life must have been like
