Digital Graffiti Maps of Roman Pompeii

The Roman city of Pompeii, buried catastrophically by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, is a treasure trove of historical information not otherwise available for the ancient world. Because of the circumstances of its destruction, the urban landscape was preserved as it was when the inhabitants fled in 79 CE, leaving behind everything: jewelry, furniture, food, tools, clothing, money, and art.
