Pompei #1

Location: Pompei, Italy

This Roman city which was covered by volcanic debris from 79AD until 1700s, has been fully preserved and is absolutely amazing

Graffiti 79AD style! This is a penis and testicles- a common form of art in those days. Not a rude symbol, but a sign of fertility

The city's outer wall

Original lead water pipes! Amazingly preserved

Chariots used to ride up these streets, in between the Pompeiin speed humps (which were for easy pedestrian crossing) as Michael is trying to demonstrate..

The patterned roof of the Baths

Water tower - all worked via gravity

The Baths are perfectly intact, with wall and ceiling decorations and al

The preserved mould of a Pompeiin man caught mid-eruption

Lizzy demonstrating the brothel beds..

The brothel had different paintings above each door..

Inside a house - check out the fresco decorations

A regular street of Pompei. See how immaculately preserved it is?!
