Boring. Excitement is when I get to go to a vet appointment.

Re: Where is all the "STUFF" from Pompeii?

That took no time at all. As you will see, the pyroclastic flow was mainly the coup de grace. The town had been battered into rubble long before.

Re: Where is all the "STUFF" from Pompeii?

Recall that it was not just the pyroclastic flow at the end. For the better part of a day Vesuvius rained ash and pumice down on the town and that gets heavy when it starts to build up.

Somewhere there was a video rendering of the eruption. I wonder if I can still find it?

Re: Where is all the "STUFF" from Pompeii?

A few roofs are said to have survived although most lost not only the roof but the second floor as well. The ash build up was simply too much weight.

Re: The Rehabilitation of HNS Continues Apace!

Right you are.

A cave in Central Germany, or the Balkans or Russia is unlikely to have a maritime element. Whereas a cave on the coast of Portugal is a totally different story. What it does suggest is that they were just as adaptable to their environment as HSS was.
