The Story of Pompeii

The Story of Pompeii


It was August 24, 79 A.D. when the disaster struck that would place Pompeii, a small wealthy Roman city, into history. Although Archaeologists have learned numerous things about Roman life from studying the ruins in Pompeii, there are still questions to be answered.

When I set out to research the internet for information about Pompeii, I was disappointed at the very small amount of real, clear, understandable, and useful information I could find. So I decided to build a site to share what I could find with the many people like me who are interested in this topic (or desperately trying to dig up info for a project or report).

I do hope this site can be useful to you, it is dedicated to the A.D. 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, and what we learned from the ruins. Here also is information about what life in Pompeii was like in that time, and Links to other Pompeii sites. So, if you are doing a project or report about Pompeii, BOOKMARK THIS SITE. Also, please take a moment to Sign my guestbook or View my guestbook.

Interested In Other Italian History?

I recommend the foreign film, Life is Beautiful (Now on video). It won oscars for best actor (Roberto Benigni), best original score, and best foreign film. To learn more about this wonderful movie, you can go to the Official Page. After seeing the movie, I bought the CD of the score and I think it is sensational. To listen to clips or to purchase it, click here. You can also visit the feature in the MovieTunes site here
