A deafening boom roars through Pompeii's crowded marketplace. The ground shakes violently, throwing midday shoppers off balance and toppling stands of fish and meat. People scream and point toward Mount Vesuvius, a massive volcano that rises above them. In 79 AD, torrid volcanic ash and pumice raced down the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and engulfed Pompeii wiping out the entire population.
