I.A.14. Frozen In Time (Pompeii)

It’s called the “Garden Of The Fugitives” because of the 13 bodies found in an orchard garden, offers visitors a frozen glimpse of Pompeii’s last hours. The thirteen adults and children were found huddled together, making futile attempts to shield themselves from the onslaught of volcanic dust, pumice, stone, and ash.

This was the last part of our Pompeii tour and it saddened me, for in fact it was a city of the dead. But as a history buff it was very educational and informative.
