AD 79. A devastating volcanic eruption at Mount Vesuvius results in an entire Roman town being completely submerged in rubble and ash. The majority of the town's inhabitants manage to flee and the bodies of the 10% who are left behind remain preserved in time. 

Despite the suffering and destruction wrought on the town by the eruption, the disaster is the only reason that the ways of life of this advanced ancient civilisation could gradually be pieced together; indeed, without the eruption, such an intimate connection between past and present would simply not exist: ash buried much of the town, preserving it as a wonderful archaeological resource for future generations – the buildings, art, artefacts, and bodies forever frozen offer a unique window on the ancient world.
