Pompeii was lost to us for many centuries until it was rediscovered again, initially in 1599, and properly in the 1700s. It is one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. The volcanic eruption wiped out the population of Pompeii, but the town they lived in was remarkably well-preserved because of the combination of ash and lack of moisture that sealed the town, and essentially turned it into a time capsule.
