Some of the photos may be disturbing to some people. I have taken pictures from my visit to Pompeii and a few are of the victims.
When you think of the word mayhem many thing may pop in your head. Maybe you’re thinking of a earthquake or shopping on Black Friday. There are very few events that happened before the 1700’s for which people universally know most of the details. One of my favorite and well-known historical events of mayhem and murder is Pompeii on August 24, 79 AD
For those who don’t know about Pomeii I will give you a bit of information. Mount Vesuvius erupted on near the Roman town of Pompeii near Naples, Italy. The town was covered in ashes and the people that didn’t make it out of town died.
You might be wondering why I said murder. Well that is because some slaves and even pets were chained to houses.
The event itself isn’t the only reason why Pompeii is important. The city was burned and covered in ashes while Roman citizens were living life as they did back in 79 AD.
