Pompeii Lava

Der letzte Tag von Pompeji spielte sich ganz anders ab als bisher angenommen. in einem silbernen Schutzanzug untersucht Lava-Gestein. Lavamassen drangen in die Häuser ein, und es gab kaum ein Entkommen. Der größte Teil der Opfer wurde bei diesem zweiten Ausbruch am August getötet. Pompeji (lateinisch Pompeii, altgriechisch Πομπηΐα Pompēḯa, italienisch Pompei) war eine Die Eruption schleuderte Unmengen von Asche, Lava und Gasen in die Atmosphäre. Diese Wolke wurde vom Wind über das Land in Richtung.

A riot in the amphitheatre at Pompeii between the Pompeians and the Nucerians, in 59 ce , is reported by the Roman historian Tacitus.

An earthquake in 62 ce did great damage in both Pompeii and Herculaneum. The cities had not yet recovered from this catastrophe when final destruction overcame them 17 years later.

Mount Vesuvius erupted on August 24, 79 ce. A vivid eyewitness report is preserved in two letters written by Pliny the Younger to the historian Tacitus, who had inquired about the death of Pliny the Elder , commander of the Roman fleet at Misenum.

Pliny the Elder had rushed from Misenum to help the stricken population and to get a close view of the volcanic phenomena, and he died at Stabiae.

Site excavations and volcanological studies, notably in the late 20th century, have brought out further details. Just after midday on August 24, fragments of ash, pumice , and other volcanic debris began pouring down on Pompeii, quickly covering the city to a depth of more than 9 feet 3 metres and causing the roofs of many houses to fall in.

Additional pyroclastic flows and rains of ash followed, adding at least another 9 feet of debris and preserving in a pall of ash the bodies of the inhabitants who perished while taking shelter in their houses or trying to escape toward the coast or by the roads leading to Stabiae or Nuceria.

Thus Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash 19 to 23 feet 6 to 7 metres deep. Article Media. Info Print Print. Table Of Contents.

The period between about — BC witnessed large areas of the city being abandoned while important sanctuaries such as the Temple of Apollo show a sudden lack of votive material remains.

The Samnites , people from the areas of Abruzzo and Molise , and allies of the Romans, conquered Greek Cumae between and BC and it is likely that all the surrounding territory, including Pompeii, was already conquered around BC.

The new rulers gradually imposed their architecture and enlarged the town. Pompeii, although governed by the Samnites, entered the Roman orbit, to which it remained faithful even during the third Samnite war and in the war against Pyrrhus.

In the late 4th century BC the city began to expand from its nucleus and into the open walled area. The street plan of the new areas was more regular and more conformal to Hippodamus 's street plan.

The city walls were reinforced in Sarno stone in the early 3rd century BC the limestone enceinte , or the "first Samnite wall".

It formed the basis for the currently visible walls with an outer wall of rectangular limestone blocks as a terrace wall supporting a large agger , or earth embankment, behind it.

After the Samnite Wars from BC, Pompeii was forced to accept the status of socii of Rome, maintaining, however, linguistic and administrative autonomy.

In the 2nd century BC, Pompeii enriched itself by taking part in Rome's conquest of the east as shown by a statue of Apollo in the Forum erected by Lucius Mummius in gratitude for their support in the sack of Corinth and the eastern campaigns.

These riches enabled Pompeii to bloom and expand to its ultimate limits. The forum and many public and private buildings of high architectural quality were built, including Teatro Grande , the Temple of Jupiter , the Basilica, the Comitium, the Stabian Baths and a new two-story portico.

Pompeii was one of the towns of Campania that rebelled against Rome in the Social Wars and in 89 BC it was besieged by Sulla , who targeted the strategically vulnerable Porta Ercolano with his artillery as can still be seen by the impact craters of thousands of ballista shots in the walls.

Many nearby buildings inside the walls were also destroyed. Many of Sulla's veterans were given land and property in and around the city, while many of those who opposed Rome were dispossessed of their property.

Despite this, the Pompeians were granted Roman citizenship and they were quickly assimilated into the Roman world.

The main language in the city became Latin, [26] and many of Pompeii's old aristocratic families Latinized their names as a sign of assimilation. The city became an important passage for goods that arrived by sea and had to be sent toward Rome or Southern Italy along the nearby Appian Way.

Many public buildings were built or refurbished and improved under the new order; new buildings included the Amphitheatre of Pompeii in 70 BC, the Forum Baths, and the Odeon , while the forum was embellished with the colonnade of Popidius before 80 BC.

Under Augustus , from about 30 BC a major expansion in new public buildings, as in the rest of the empire, included the Eumachia Building , the Sanctuary of Augustus and the Macellum.

In AD 59, there was a serious riot and bloodshed in the amphitheatre between Pompeians and Nucerians which is recorded in a fresco and which led the Roman senate to send the Praetorian Guard to restore order and to ban further events for a period of ten years.

The inhabitants of Pompeii had long been used to minor earthquakes indeed, the writer Pliny the Younger wrote that earth tremors "were not particularly alarming because they are frequent in Campania" , but on 5 February 62 [31] a severe earthquake did considerable damage around the bay, and particularly to Pompeii.

It is believed that the earthquake would have registered between about 5 and 6 on the Richter magnitude scale. On that day in Pompeii, there were to be two sacrifices, as it was the anniversary of Augustus being named "Father of the Nation" and also a feast day to honour the guardian spirits of the city.

Chaos followed the earthquake; fires caused by oil lamps that had fallen during the quake added to the panic. The nearby cities of Herculaneum and Nuceria were also affected.

Between 62 and the eruption in 79 most rebuilding was done in the private sector and older, damaged frescoes were often covered with newer ones, for example.

In the public sector the opportunity was taken to improve buildings and the city plan e. An important field of current research concerns structures that were restored between the earthquake of 62 and the eruption.

It was thought until recently that some of the damage had still not been repaired at the time of the eruption but this has been shown to be doubtful as the evidence of missing forum statues and marble wall-veneers are most likely due to robbers after the city's burial.

Some buildings like the Central Baths were only started after the earthquake and were built to enhance the city with modern developments in their architecture, as had been done in Rome, in terms of wall-heating and window glass, and with well-lit spacious rooms.

The new baths took over a whole insula by demolishing houses, which may have been made easier by the earthquake that had damaged these houses.

This shows that the city was still flourishing rather than struggling to recover from the earthquake. In about 64, Nero and his wife Poppaea visited Pompeii and made gifts to the temple of Venus, probably when he performed in the theatre of Naples.

By 79, Pompeii had a population of 20,, [39] which had prospered from the region's renowned agricultural fertility and favourable location.

The eruption lasted for two days. That only approximately 1, bodies [41] have so far been found on site seems to confirm this theory and most escapees probably managed to salvage some of their most valuable belongings; many skeletons were found with jewellery, coins and silverware.

At some time in the night or early the next day, pyroclastic flows began near the volcano, consisting of high speed, dense, and very hot ash clouds, knocking down wholly or partly all structures in their path, incinerating or suffocating the remaining population and altering the landscape, including the coastline.

By evening of the second day, the eruption was over, leaving only haze in the atmosphere through which the sun shone weakly.

A multidisciplinary volcanological and bio-anthropological study [42] of the eruption products and victims, merged with numerical simulations and experiments, indicates that at Pompeii and surrounding towns heat was the main cause of death of people, previously believed to have died by ash suffocation.

The people and buildings of Pompeii were covered in up to twelve different layers of tephra , in total up to 6 metres Pliny the Younger provided a first-hand account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius from his position across the Bay of Naples at Misenum but written 25 years after the event.

As admiral of the fleet, Pliny the Elder had ordered the ships of the Imperial Navy stationed at Misenum to cross the bay to assist evacuation attempts.

Volcanologists have recognised the importance of Pliny the Younger's account of the eruption by calling similar events " Plinian ".

It had long been thought that the eruption was an August event based on one version of the letter but another version [44] gives a date of the eruption as late as 23 November.

A later date is consistent with a charcoal inscription at the site, discovered in , which includes the date of 17 October and which must have been recently written.

Nuts from chestnut trees were found at Oplontis which would not have been mature before mid-September. Coins found in the purse of a woman buried in the ash include one with a 15th imperatorial acclamation among the emperor 's titles.

These coins could not have been minted before the second week of September. Titus appointed two ex-consuls to organise a relief effort, while donating large amounts of money from the imperial treasury to aid the victims of the volcano.

Soon after the burial of the city, survivors and possibly thieves came to salvage valuables, including the marble statues from the forum and other precious materials from buildings.

There is wide evidence of post-eruption disturbance, including holes made through walls. The city was not completely buried, and tops of larger buildings would have been above the ash making it obvious where to dig or salvage building material.

Over the following centuries, its name and location were forgotten, though it still appeared on the Tabula Peutingeriana of the 4th century.

Further eruptions particularly in — and covered the remains more deeply. The area became known as the La Civita the city due to the features in the ground.

The next known date that any part was unearthed was in , when architect Domenico Fontana while digging an underground aqueduct to the mills of Torre Annunziata ran into ancient walls covered with paintings and inscriptions.

His aqueduct passed through and under a large part of the city [52] and would have had to pass though many buildings and foundations, as still can be seen in many places today, but he kept quiet and nothing more came of the discovery.

In , Francesco Picchetti saw a wall inscription mentioning decurio Pompeiis "town councillor of Pompeii" , but he associated it with a villa of Pompey.

Franceso Bianchini pointed out the true meaning and he was supported by Giuseppe Macrini, who in excavated some walls and wrote that Pompeii lay beneath La Civita.

Herculaneum itself was rediscovered in by workmen digging for the foundations of a summer palace for the King of Naples , Charles of Bourbon.

Due to the spectacular quality of the finds, the Spanish military engineer Rocque Joaquin de Alcubierre made excavations to find further remains at the site of Pompeii in , even if the city was not identified.

Karl Weber directed the first scientific excavations. There was much progress in exploration when the French occupied Naples in and ruled over Italy from to The land on which Pompeii lies was expropriated and up to workers were used in the excavations.

The excavated areas in the north and south were connected. Parts of the Via dell'Abbondanza were also exposed in west—east direction and for the first time an impression of the size and appearance of the ancient town could be appreciated.

In the following years, the excavators struggled with lack of money and excavations progressed slowly, but with significant finds such as the houses of the Faun , of Menandro , of the Tragic Poet and of the Surgeon.

Giuseppe Fiorelli took charge of the excavations in and made greater progress. It was Fiorelli who realised these were spaces left by the decomposed bodies and so devised the technique of injecting plaster into them to recreate the forms of Vesuvius's victims.

This technique is still in use today, with a clear resin now used instead of plaster because it is more durable, and does not destroy the bones, allowing further analysis.

Fiorelli also introduced scientific documentation. He divided the city into the present nine areas regiones and blocks insulae and numbered the entrances of the individual houses domus , so that each is identified by these three numbers.

Fiorelli also published the first periodical with excavation reports. Under Fiorelli's successors the entire west of the city was exposed.

In the s, Amedeo Maiuri excavated for the first time in older layers than that of 79 AD in order to learn about the settlement history.

Maiuri made the last excavations on a grand scale in the s, and the area south of the Via dell'Abbondanza and the city wall was almost completely uncovered, but they were poorly documented scientifically.

Preservation was haphazard and presents today's archaeologists with great difficulty. Questionable reconstruction was done in the s and s after the severe earthquake of , which caused great destruction.

Since then, except for targeted soundings and excavations, work was confined to the excavated areas.

Further excavations on a large scale are not planned and today archaeologists try to reconstruct, to document and, above all, to stop the ever faster decay.

Under the 'Great Pompeii Project' over 2. As of August , these excavations have resumed on unexcavated areas of Regio V. Objects buried beneath Pompeii were well-preserved for almost 2, years as the lack of air and moisture allowed little to no deterioration.

However, once exposed, Pompeii has been subject to both natural and man-made forces, which have rapidly increased deterioration.

Weathering, erosion, light exposure, water damage, poor methods of excavation and reconstruction, introduced plants and animals, tourism, vandalism and theft have all damaged the site in some way.

The lack of adequate weather protection of all but the most interesting and important buildings has allowed original interior decoration to fade or be lost.

Two-thirds of the city has been excavated, but the remnants of the city are rapidly deteriorating. Furthermore, during World War II many buildings were badly damaged or destroyed by bombs dropped in several raids by the Allied forces.

The concern for conservation has continually troubled archaeologists. The ancient city was included in the World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund , and again in and in In the organisation claimed that Pompeii "desperately need[ed] repair" and called for the drafting of a general plan of restoration and interpretation.

Kress Foundation. Today, funding is mostly directed into conservation of the site; however, due to the expanse of Pompeii and the scale of the problems, this is inadequate in halting the slow decay of the materials.

A study recommended an improved strategy for interpretation and presentation of the site as a cost-effective method of improving its conservation and preservation in the short term.

The structure was not open to visitors, but the outside was visible to tourists. There was no immediate determination as to what caused the building to collapse, although reports suggested water infiltration following heavy rains might have been responsible.

There has been fierce controversy after the collapse, with accusations of neglect. Under the Romans after the conquest by Sulla in 89 BC, Pompeii underwent a process of urban development which accelerated in the Augustan period from about 30 BC.

New public buildings include the amphitheatre with palaestra or gymnasium with a central natatorium cella natatoria or swimming pool, two theatres, the Eumachia Building and at least four public baths.

The amphitheatre has been cited by scholars as a model of sophisticated design, particularly in the area of crowd control.

Other service buildings were the Macellum "meat market" ; the Pistrinum "mill" ; the Thermopolium a fast food place that served hot and cold dishes and beverages , and cauponae "cafes" or "dives" with a seedy reputation as hangouts for thieves and prostitutes.

At least one building, the Lupanar , was dedicated to prostitution. The aqueduct was a branch of the great Serino Aqueduct built to serve the other large towns in the Bay of Naples region and the important naval base at Misenum.

People who tried to flee it fell in the streets, unable to breathe. Then the main body arrived, powerful enough to tear through walls still standing after the roof collapses.

Lower floors in Pompeii were protected by their pumice tomb, but above them, walls athwart the flow were bulldozed, surviving roofs ripped off.

The flow poured in through those gaping wounds in the buildings; where roofs had managed to survive, ash and rock still found its way in through courtyards and other openings.

Many people lived long enough to try to shelter their faces from the onslaught, but it buried them where they lay, some of them propped half-upright, fighting to breathe.

Indoors or out, it buried them. When it was over, it had left a hard, dense, layer of pyroclastic material up to 3 meters 10 feet thick.

Vesuvius finished its cataclysmic eruption with a few more phreatomagmatic explosions, blanketing the remains of Pompeii with more layers of ash.

By the end of the eruption, around 8 in the morning on August 25th, only a few of the tallest buildings remained visible, like tombstones on a grave.

The deposits, heavy and rich with fine ash and rock fragments, settled, hardened over ages. The city and the citizens who had died with it would remain buried for almost two thousand years.

We've found of the people who died in that final pyroclastic flow. We've found their bones, and we've found the voids their bodies left in that hard deposit.

In about B. That prehistoric catastrophe destroyed almost every village, house and farm within 15 miles of the mountain. Villagers around the volcano had long learned to live with their volatile environment.

Even after a massive earthquake struck the Campania region in 63 A. Pompeii grew more crowded every year. Sixteen years after that telltale earthquake, in either August or October 79 A.

The blast sent a plume of ashes, pumice and other rocks, and scorching-hot volcanic gases so high into the sky that people could see it for hundreds of miles around.

As it cooled, this tower of debris drifted to earth: first the fine-grained ash, then the lightweight chunks of pumice and other rocks.

Helens Books Commemorate Mount St. After discovering several air pockets that indicated the presence of human remains in a street dubbed "the Alley of Skeletons," Fiorelli and his team decided to pour plaster into the voids.

They let the plaster harden, then chipped away the outer layers of ash, which left behind the cast of the volcano's victims at the time of their deaths.

Many of the victims remain frozen in contorted positions, some had been trying to shield their faces with their hands, one mother was found desperately trying to shield her child.

Without the adornments of toga, tunics or any other clothing that would indicate the period during which they lived, the bodies of Pompeii seem as though they could have been from last year.
