Like Pompeii, Herculaneum was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD Herculaneum was a residential area, without any commercial importance such as Pompeii. It boasted beautiful villas of wealthy Romans. Herculaneum was submerged by a torrent of mud that turned into a soft tufa stone. The conditions preserved a lot of frescoes and artefacts, whose majority are kept in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, today. The most part of the ancient Herculaneum is still underneath.
