Pompeii was lost to us for many centuries. It was discovered initially in 1599 and properly in the 1700s and it’s one of the world’s truly great archaeological sites. The volcano wiped out the people, but the town they lived in was remarkably well-preserved because of the combination of ash and lack of moisture.
