In addition to the stone walls, columns, and statues, there were many other artifacts found in the buried city. Imagine all of the pots, jugs, and jars that would be left behind by those who managed to flee the destruction.
Behind the fence on the right of the picture above is a new roof which is sheltering many of those items found.
During the excavating they found cavities in the solidified ash. By carefully pouring plaster into these cavities, they were able to make casts of their shapes. The results are both surprising and disturbing.
Not all casts turned out to be people. Here is one of a dog.
There is so much more to see.
