... The destruction of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and the villas in the surrounding area by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79 preserved a unique body of information about flora and fauna, such as is available at no other ancient site. Root cavities can be emptied of lapilli and casts...
