eruptions in order to draw conclusions on what could be done to mitigate loss of life and destruction. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD on Pompeii and surrounding areas proved to be catastrophic because of the location of the volcano and especially since citizens were not aware that an active volcano was in their midst. By examining the series of events that took place at Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and comparing them to the impacts and forecasting of present day volcanism, one could draw better conclusions
often cone-shaped accumulation above it. (Scarth, 1994.) This definition can do Mt. Vesuvius no justice. Instead, I would describe it as one of the most hellish and population decimating volcanoes. Vesuvius lives…or lived! In its prime, Vesuvius covered and demolished two of Italy’s biggest cultural and artistic cities of its time. In this paper, I will be discussing volcanoes in general. In addition, Mt. Vesuvius, in particular, will be thoroughly looked at, as well as its 79 AD eruption.
field sites display Roman grid planning, or Centuriation, at its most elaborate such as at Cesena, Padua, and Florence. Here, at Pompeii, a famous Italian town in antiquity because of its excellent preservation caused by the volcanic explosion of Mt. Vesuvius during the first century AD. The streets, canals, agriculture plots and public spaces were laid out along geometric lines and these striations are suggestive of an ordered arrangement reflected by the regular layout of a square grid, made famous
How was the water transported to individual homes? How were they able to control the flow of the water? Did they have toilets and sinks? How did they dispose of waste? Since Pompeii (and Herculaneum) were so well preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, archaeologists have been able to answer these questions and more. Studying the use of water in Pompeian homes teaches us about the level of technology available to them and also offers us insight
