In the history of the world, there has been an unfortunate city that was destroyed 2,000 years ago in 79 AD as if it had never existed in the world.
The Italian city of Pompeii was located a few miles off the coast of Naples and a few miles from a volcano. The city had a population of 20,000.
In its time, it was the most modern and civilized city in the world. The buildings of this city had excellent designs and solid bricks, while the city’s drainage system was also excellent.
When researchers discovered the city, they discovered a stadium with a seating capacity of 20,000.
However, the moral values of the city dwellers had deteriorated. Evils such as gambling and alcohol were very common here.
A volcano erupted near the city of Pompeii, erupting lava that engulfed everything. The whole city became a human graveyard, hidden from human sight for 1600 years.
In 1748, archaeologists discovered the ancient Roman city, which was buried under a mound of ash and mud. The buildings discovered were in perfect condition.
The search team saw horrific scenes ٬ they discovered human bodies turned to stone under a pile of ashes and mud – these humans died in the same condition in which they were.
Experts also found pieces of dry bread and other items with a thick layer of ashes on several bodies.
Experts say that the city was settled in 800 BC in which magnificent and beautiful bungalows were built and the streets were paved.
According to researchers, the volcano that erased the city from the face of the earth erupted in 1780 BC and caused a similar catastrophe – at that time its lava was seen up to 22 miles above the sky while 15 miles. The villages spread to him were engulfed in it.
Then, in 79 AD, the volcano erupted again. At that time, the ash and lava emanating from here could be seen from hundreds of miles away.
The ruins of this city still contain ruined houses and human structures that are a sign for human beings.
