One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.
Mt Vesuvius in the distance
One of the grand buildings
The courtyard of a wealthy citizens house
Birds figured in a number of designs on the walls
Repeating patterns on many of the walls decorating the houses
Some included figures
Some fresco’s were colourful
My last view of Pompeii
