Herculaneum, Pompeii sister city, also buried in the eruption. Was hermetically sealed by the ash and lava so many items such as bone and wood were preserved, which was not the case with Pompeii. However, there is a modern city above herculaneum, so only about 25% has been excavated.

I have been obsessed with Vesuvius ever since I was 5. Riding a horse up it for my 19th birthday was splendiferous.

Herculaneum - also covered at the same time as Pompei but covered in a mud made of volcanic ash, earth, and rain.
