Pompeii

9.0/10

Pompeii (in Afrikaans ook Pompeji gespel; Latyns: Pompeii; Italiaans: Pompei) was 'n antieke Romeinse hawestad aan die Golf van Napels in Kampanië wat net soos Herculaneum en Stabiae tydens die uitbarsting van die vulkaan Vesuvius onder vulkaniese rotse en as begrawe is. Dit was op 24 Augustus 79 n.C. tydens keiser Titus se bewind.

In sy sewehonderdjarige geskiedenis is Pompeii agtereenvolgens deur Osci, Samniete, Grieke, Etruskers en Romeine bewoon wat almal hul spore hier gelaat het. Vulkaniese as en rotse het die ruïnestad tot sy herontdekking in die 18de eeu bedek toe dit die belangstelling van argeoloë en geskiedkundiges gewek het. As een van die bes bewaarde Romeinse ruïnestede gee Pompeii 'n goeie indruk van 'n 1ste eeuse Romeinse nedersetting en die destydse kultuur en leefstyl. Die Argeologiese terreine van Pompeii, Herculaneum en Torre Annunziata is in 1997 deur UNESCO as wêrelderfenisgebiede gelys.

When Vesuvius erupted on 24 August AD 79, it engulfed the two flourishing Roman towns of Pompei and Herculaneum, as well as the many wealthy villas in the area.
