Pompeii pictures!

No, I didn't go to Pompeii :P I went to museum of Science in Boston with my family for my mom's birthday. Mom loves Pompeii, so dad got us tickets for the exhibits ^^ It was amazing, and heartbreaking.



My phone wallpaper :3


You see that card there. This is a LOAF OF BEAD. That survived a VOLCANO. o.O damn...

Gladiators helmet!


The Casts. When the people were buried in hot ash, they left behind imprints of themselves. They're amazingly detailed and heartbreaking. These were once living humans (and a dog)  that choked to death on burning hot ash. It's just... really powerful to see them in person.
A young lady covering her face from the ash

A man and a lady (married, perhaps) that wouldn't leave the other to die alone

Skeletons found in a bathhouse people had taken shelter in.

A man's face

A guard dog that was left behind. It strangled itself on it's chain when it was trying to get away.

Me, my sister, and my brother underneath the exhibit poster.
