Für die Betroffenen war es eine Katastrophe, für die Nachwelt ein Glücksfall. Am 24. August 79 n. Chr. brach völlig unerwartet der Vesuv aus und bedeckte die malerisch am Golf von Neapel gelegene Stadt Pompeji mit einer dicken Schicht aus Asche und Vulkangestein. Als die Archäologen später die versunkene Welt von Pompeji wieder ans Tageslicht beförderten,... more...
