Seeing this charcoaled partition and hearing the audio guide explaining the best methods to preserve all the charred organic matter across the site gives a wonderful perspective to what happened in AD79

Of course, the mansion is impressive, but the charred wooden doors in the atrium are realy the best. Carefully protected with perspex they are clearly visible for everyone. Also the marble table is beautiful.

Beautifully preserved wooden partition in a villa at Herculaneum, standing in their original position but showing the effects of having been subject to hot lava from Vesuvius. The villa is fascinating and even has charred beds too
