How did the ancient Romans live?

A discovery tour of  Herculaneum, the city less known but in better state of conservation  that the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, along with Pompeii, destroyed completely. Remains of the same fatal fate the two cities and their inhabitants were however substantially different protagonists of the events that followed.

Pompei was hit for two days by an incessant rain of pumice, ash and lapilli, and its people died mainly from suffocation when they thought that the worst had passed.

All the citizens of Herculaneum were instead burned alive, unable to seek refuge from a pyroclastic cloud from the crater, which rapidly fell on the city, the city was then submerged with mud. Result of this diversity are the different features of archaeological finds: the houses of Herculaneum have survived in a better state of preservation, in many cases retaining the original roof, the second floor and some wooden structures, as well as objects like interior decoration and papyrus.
