Herculanium skeletons -
Some of the 300 skeletons of the mainly woman and children victims of Vesuvius in the boat sheds in Herculanium near Naples. These people were probably waiting for rescue when hit by the pyroclastic flow from the volcano in 79AD and were killed by the heat and gasses instantly.

Castel del'Ovo , Naples -
This is the Castel del'Ovo (Castle of the Egg) in Naples in the evening light. This castle is on the site of the original settlement, and the Roman era castle supposedly had an egg set by Virgil in the foundations, and if the egg broke then there would be disaster for Naples! This castle is from the Norman invasion of the 12th century . This was actually the view from out hotel room balcony!
