It all happened, we think, due to a violent release of volcanic gases, ash, and pumice, that created a towering column that reached over 20 miles into the atmosphere.

The eruption was of lavas and fragments of rock that flew up from the volcano, swiftly engulfed Pompeii and nearby settlements, burying them beneath layers of ash and debris. The speed and intensity of these surges caught the inhabitants off guard, leaving them little time to escape. The city’s buildings, artifacts, and even the remains of its citizens were remarkably preserved by these volcanic materials, allowing archaeologists to learn so much about in the ancient Roman world.
