      In the year still further purchases of land were made, and excavations were carried on in an eastward direction till The name of the book would never even let you know it would be designed for use as a guide book, but this is the tag line for the book, that I think says it all: "Few other archaeological sites in the world rival Pompeii for the amount of information it reveals about the lives of its ancient inhabitants. Also the presence of scarring on the pelvis, for instance, may give some indication of the number of children a woman had borne. Modern coast lines are shown.

However, excavation ceased once the nearby town of Pompeii was discovered, which was significantly easier to excavate because of the thinner layer of debris covering the site 4 m as opposed to Herculaneum's 20 m.

Per common practice, there were two different bath areas, one for men and the other for women.

      Machine translation like DeepL or Google Translate is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia. Many of the local people would have fled the area before the volcanic eruption occurred. From here, you will hike with a guide to the crater about a 20 minute walk along an easy trail. Opt instead to plan on about 4 hours, and touch on just the most important sights. A wonderful, inspirational place to visit.
