A small street between Insula II and III in Regio I - just opposite the entrance to the odeon (small theatre).

Pompeii is one of the most famous cities of the Roman empire - completely buried in ashes when the volcano Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D. When the place was rediscovered and excavated in more modern times we were given a great snapshot of life almost two thousand years ago.

But Pompeii's history is more than just this eruption. It was founded already in the 7th or 6th century B.C. by a people named Oscans (or Osci). In the 5th century the city was captured by the Samnites - but after the Samnite Wars (second half of the 4th century B.C.) Pompeii was taken over by the Romans, though keeping a lot of its autonomy. When the towns of Campania rose against the Roman rule, Pompeii took part in this, but was besieged and defeated by Sulla in 89 B.C. After this Pompeii was turned into a proper Roman colony with the name Colonia Cornelia Veneria Pompeianorum.

Earthquakes, caused by the seismic activities which also causes Vesuvius to erupt, were (and still are) common in the area, but there were also severe incidents before 79 A.D - including a big earthquake in 62 A.D. A lot of the buildings in Pompeii shows signs of repairs after this.

At the Givenchy Road Canadian cemetery - a by First World War war cemetery standards tiny one. Here are 111 burials and, which is really unusual for the time, just 2 of them are unidentified. All buried here are Canadians, primarily from the Canadian 4th Division, and all fell April 9-13 1917 during the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

At the Canadian National Vimy Memorial - including both a monument and a park with remains of the battlefield of Vimy Ridge, with trenches and the disrupted earth showing how the landscape looked not just here but along most of the Western front after the war.

The battle of Vimy Ridge was between Commonwealth troops (4 Canadian division and one British) and German forces on 9 to 12 April 1917 as part of the Battle of Arras. The Commonwealth had 170 000 men there, 3 598 died and 7 004 were wounded. It is not known how many of the Germans that were killed or wounded. (The memorial area also includes several Commonwealth war cemeteries.)
