The eruption of the Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii in 79 A.D. hit the city of Herculaneum too with a flow of dirt and lava. But unlike Pompeii, the city of Herculaneum preserved wooden buildings and any sort of goods. So for archeological studies is a very important place. Sculptures, paints, vases and so on are now in the “Archeological Museum of Naples” and in the “Antiquarium”.
