Disapering history : Ancient Pompeii structures collapses

Now another structure has collapsed in Pompeii which has started to raise fears about the state of the ancient Roman town that was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79.

Its a 25-foot long garden wall which was surrounding one of the citys best known houses, the house of the Moralist that have collapsed.

The building lies along the Via dell’Abbondanza, some 65 feet from the ruins of the frescoed House of Gladiators, which fall down in to a pile of rubble earlier this year.

The wall was completely reconstructed after a World War II bombing destroyed the original structure.

says the superintendency of Pompeii, and continues

Luckly, no major damage seems to have occurred to the house of the Moralist
