Pompeii fascinates the people for many centuries and attracts approximately 2.5 million visitors every single year. Nowadays, Pompeii has the status of UNESCO World Heritage to maintain and preserve this historical city. It is assumed that Pompeii was founded 600 or 700 BC and was a Roman colony. The very well conserved ruins show that the eruption destroyed a well-developed city and thousands of people within only a few seconds.
The objects that lay beneath the city have been preserved for centuries because of the lack of air and moisture. These artifacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. Discover this ancient city here on Colourbox.com!
