The Eruption of Mount Vesuvius

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried by an avalanche of boiling mud and lava. Pompeii was buried about 20-40 feet underground and Herculaneum about 60-75 feet. A young historian named Pliny the Younger witnessed the whole event from Misenum, about 20 miles away.
