Although many people saw it, no one
believed it, that almost all of the people had
died. It was only rediscovered in the 19th
century by a famer digging.
As the massive cloud from the volcano went
up into the sky, pumice and rocks fell from
the sky , this knocked out and killed some
people ! Then a huge pyroclastic flow came
and destroyed and demolished any thing in
its path, including people. When the people
were found they had been turned to stone
and rubble in the same position as
they were in when the flow came.
The people of Pompeii believe that the terrible thing that happened was because they were doing bad things so gods sent them a sin.
They believed that there was more then one god.
People who survived longer then other s when it was happening prayed to try and get the gods to save their life's.
Pliny was a young man witnessing the whole thing from his bed room.
He wrote down every thing he saw , after a few thousands of years people found Pompeii and they uncovered the secrets of Pliny’s account.
It was looked in a box in his room , not touched.
