Summary
At noontime on August 24, A.D. 79, the tranquil mountain of Vesuvius exploded with a force ten times as violent as the recent Mt. St. Helen's eruption. Buried under 25 feet of volcanic ash was Pompeii. Buried under 65 feet of pyroclastic avalanche, and sealed as if in plastic, was Pompeii's sister city, Herculaneum
