Pompei #2

Location: Pompei, Italy

Some more shots of the incredibly preserved ancient Roman city

Michael showing the depth of the ruts caused by the chariot wheels!!! This is not a drain people.

Terracotta pots still intact

A bakery - there were actual loaves of bread found preserved here. They are in a museum now

A fast food shop

This rather lewd creature was set at the front door of a house to demonstrate fertility!

A wall painting inside a wealthy home - note the cherubs....this is pre-Christ art

A mould of a Pompeiin citizen, buried alive in the ash

A Pompeiin street, with Vesuvius behind 10 km away. This is why there was no lava here, but plenty of stones and ash

And, a little lighter, Lizzy enjoying a post-best-pizza-ever limoncello to soothe the digestion apparently!

The main square of ancient Pompei

Vesuvious - the cause of the Pompeiin's downfall

Panoramic shot of the Grande Theatre of Pompei - acts still performed here to this day, to take advantage of incredible acoustics
