Summer: Herculanium

During the summer break I also went away with my family to Sorento In the south of Italy, close to Pompey. Further down the line there is another roman town preserved by volcanic ash over 2000 years ago. I found this visit completely and utterly fascinating, In second year I did a brief on spray painting techniques researching into permanent and non-permanent paint. It astounded me that there were paintings on the walls completely intact that had survived for over 2000 years.
