HISTORY MEME I : 1/2 Natural Disasters - Mount Vesuvius Eruption of 79 AD
“The buildings were now shaking with violent shocks and seemed to be swaying to and fro as if they were torn from their foundations… Broad sheets of flame were lighting up many parts of Vesuvius; their light and brightness were the more vivid for the darkness of the night… it was daylight now elsewhere in the world, but there the darkness was darker and thicker than any night.” - Pliny the Younger
