Pompeii Pictures from Ms. Tang’s visit July 2010 Excavated ruins at Pompeii
This is the view from the entrance of a home in Pompeii. The room is the atrium, where guests were greeted. In the middle is the impluvium, where water was collected in a shallow pool through a hole in the ceiling called the compluvium.
This is a view of a road in Pompeii leading to the forum. The large circular stones in the road were stepping stones. Trash and refuse often filled the streets so stepping stones were necessary to cross!
Columns near the Temple of Jupiter in the forum at Pompeii.
