Live From Pompeii (Virtual Tour Part 2)

Hello Everyone!

This is the Mount Vesuvius reporting live from Pompeii... 

For our Fourth Day of Roman Studies we took our Virtual Tour to the city of Pompeii. 

We traveled with an adorable little door-mouse...  Can you believe the Romans actually ate cute little mice like this fellow??

As an archaeologist, Bethany was often busy studying... and yes!  The bone is real!! We found it in the woods...

Yours Truly- Here I am the Mount Vesuvius!  Also, yes that's food coloring on my face...  Judah and I used food coloring and we had the worst time getting it off.  So, in the future we will not try it again. 
For now...

Check HERE for our last post on Rome.

We will soon post all the pictures in a slide-show and will make them available for your viewing.  Did I mention that the archaeologist took a "lovely" picture of Mount Vesuvius demonstrating how she erupted?  Notice that I did not post that picture...  =)

Click HERE for the answer to the last post's question.... and now the question for this post!! 

When was the last time Mount Vesuvius erupted? 
Hint: Check the Encyclopedia if you are completely stumped.  :)
Leave your guess: HERE

Until Next Time...  Yours Truly,

~Mount Vesuvius~

P.S. Coming Soon!!  Geneva & France!!

I thought it would be the perfect idea, but it turned pink when I tried to get it off!

Thank you for your comment!
