Probably one of the most famous lost cities, Pompeii and its inhabitants were the unfortunate victims of the catastrophic volcanic eruption in 79 AD. Spanning two days, Mount Vesuvius’ eruption completely buried the Roman city under ash and pumice. It remained lost for over 1700 years until a farmer stumbled upon the ruins in 1749.
