Final Project Blog-Alex Poole

For my final project, I will be presenting about Pompeii. As many people  know, Pompeii was a city in Southern Italy that was buried by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD. I will be investigating the culture and lifestyle of the people of Pompeii before the eruption, along with the devastating eruption itself that buried most of the city’s inhabitants.  Much of the city’s infrastructure is well preserved because of the volcanic ash, and plaster casts of victims reveal how they were positioned as they were being buried alive.
