The Archeological Park of Pompeii is one of the most famous places in the world for its history and discoveries. During the Covid-19 pandemic, archeologists continued to work to discover new hidden treasures in the ancient city.
Recently, archeologists discovered a new private house in the area of Regio V. The house, which was called the ‘Casa del Menandro’, was found during ongoing repair and restoration work in the area. The house has been well preserved and contains many original decorations, including frescos and mosaics.
In addition, archeologists have discovered a new road in the Regio II area. The road, which was called the ‘Via della Fortuna’, was an important trade route in ancient Pompeii. The road was found during excavation work for the construction of a new entrance to the archeological park.
Another important discovery was made in the Faunon House, where archeologists discovered a secret room. The room, which was hidden behind a fake wall, was probably used as a warehouse for treasures or precious assets.
These recent discoveries show that there is still much to discover in the ancient city of Pompeii and that archeologists are making constant progress in understanding everyday life in ancient Pompeii. Despite the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, archeologists have continued their work, which is necessary to preserve and understand this unique historical site.
The Archeological Park is divided into three main sections: Regio I, Regio II and Regio V.
Regio I is the oldest section of the city and includes the forum, the theatre and the basilica. This area was the political and social centre of ancient Pompeii and is home to some of the city’s most famous monuments, including the House of the Faun and the Villa of the Mysteries.
Regio II is the central section of the city and includes the Via dell'Abbondanza, one of the main streets of Pompeii. This area was the commercial centre of the city and houses many shops, taverns and private houses.
Regio V is the most recent section of the city and includes the residential area of the wealthy Roman citizens. This area is characterised by large and well decorated houses, such as the recently discovered Casa del Menandro.
In addition, there is an area outside the archeological park of Pompeii, called Villa dei Papiri, a Roman villa discovered in the 18th century and located in the suburban area of the city, containing an extensive collection of ancient papyri.
Pompeii is a unique and fascinating place that offers the opportunity to see how the Romans lived in the first century A.D. and allows you to discover the history and culture of one of the most important cities in ancient Rome.
In conclusion, the Archeological Park continues to amaze us with new discoveries, and the last few years during COVID-19 have not been any, with important discoveries in different areas of the site. The history and culture of this ancient city continue to be a source of inspiration and charm for the whole world.
