The archaeological excavations of Pompeii have returned the remains of the ancient city of Pompeii, near the hill of Civita, at the gates of modern Pompeii, buried under a blanket of ashes and lapilli during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79, together with Ercolano, Stabia and Oplonti. The findings following the excavations, initiated by the will of Charles III of Bourbon, are one of the best testimonies of Roman life, as well as the best preserved city of that era; most of the finds recovered (as well as simple furnishings of daily use including frescoes, mosaics and statues), is kept at the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and in small quantities in the Antiquarium of Pompeii, currently closed: just the considerable amount of finds was useful to understand the uses, customs, eating habits and art of life of over two millennia ago.
