Conservation issues of Pompeii and Herculaneum

Pompeii and Herculaneum were once thriving towns in the Bay of Naples. Though both cities have rich histories influenced by Greeks, Oscans, Etruscans, Samnites and finally the Romans, they are most renowned for their destruction: both were buried in the AD 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

Emily Wylie's curator insight, March 3, 2014 10:54 PM

Pompeii is such a beautiful place full of interesting history. I was lucky enough to walk around pompeii in 2012. These fresh collapses has resulted in closures of various parts of the site. The collapses have created OHS issues within the site as people could have been injurded or killed if this occured when tourists or people who work at the site were present. Hopefully the investigations into the recent collapses will allow for methods of restoration to be formed where enviromental damage can be minimised so collapses are prevented in the future ensuring that people can enjoy this amazing bit of history for years to come.

Ben Bishop's curator insight, July 16, 2014 7:52 AM

Pompeii is just like any other world wide place to visit and can be dangerous in many ways according to OHS rules and set standards, though these are different around the world it is necessary for the safe movement of a person within and outside a certain site, especially one of old age, such as Pompeii
