A courtyard in a villa
A view of a street in Pompeii. Amazing no?
In a building they've been collecting artifacts they find to put on display. These are mostly wine vessels, but they've included a few plaster casts of the indentations left be people who died in the eruption.
A small shrine of some sort
On the outskirts of Pompeii is one of it's most famous sites - the Villa of Mysteries
This amazing fresco depicts woman's transition from a girl to a married woman. This initiation chamber is what has made the Villa of Mysteries so unique and important.
