In 79 AD, Mt. Vesuvius erupted an enormous volume of pumice and ash.

This material flowed very quickly down the side of the volcano as hot ash flows.

The ash flows covered the Roman city of Pompeii in a few hours.

Many people were trapped by the hot ash. Almost the entire population of the city was killed.
