MOH2: Lesson 9 - Pompeii. Good video that shows what it would have been like the day of the explosion.

I remember the National Geographic's article on Pompeii, and since then, I've wanted to go there. In the year 79 AD, Italy's Mt. Vesuvius erupted with superheated ash that rained fiery death on several Roman cities nearby. But none was hit harder than vacation town Pompeii, which was buried in a thick layer of broiling ash in a matter of seconds.
