With the current news about Campi Flegrei, we are going to look at the OG disaster. We’re going to take a journey back in time, all the way to Mount Vesuvius and the eruption that destroyed Pompeii and Herculaneum. We’ll also look at the ancient Roman culture that built Pompeii, what came before it and the politics (and science!) that shows the migration away from the destroyed city.
