    Herculaneum

    the feet of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum is known throughout the world for the remains of its Roman city buried, together with Pompeii, under the pumice & ashes provoked by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Herculaneum was originally discovered when a well was being dug in the 18th Century at a depth of 50 – 60 feet below the surface. Initially a series of shafts and tunnels were dug to strip the site of any saleable valuables by robbers. However, between 1749 to 1765 Herculaneum was explored on a more scientific basis for the Bourbon Kings of Naples and the Two Sicilies. A basic plan of the town was mapped out and much of the portable remains removed but eventually these tunnels collapsed and were closed down. The modern towns of Resina and Portici grew up over the site and knowledge of where the entrances to the tunnels were was lost to the scientific community.
