This is Pompeii
This is Claudia an 11 year old Roman girl. She lives in the city of Pompeii in the year 78 AD right by the rumbling volcano, Vesuvius. Pompeii is a wealthy Roman town famous for its merchants, fruit and vegetable stores and slave markets.
Everyone was shocked by the sudden motus
This is Claudias family. Sextus, her youngest brother, is 5. Marcus the second oldest child is 9. Her mothers name is Juno and father is Titus. They live with their household slaves.Her father is a wealthy baker, and his bread is famous throughout the region.
me hurcule! (Oh my goodness!)
Mater? Pater? Quid accidit? (Mother? Father? what happened?)
O, non! ( Oh no )
The city of Pompeii is filled with entertainment, such as the: Slavery markets, Bakeries, The houses, The rich people, The Volcano ( Vesuvius ) and most important of all there beliefs about their gods.
One day Claudia and her Father, Titus when't to a slavery market by their house. Diana was shocked, she could not believe how these people were treated! But then... There was a motus*.*Latin for earthquake
When Claudia and her father came home they noticed a huge crack in the wall of the bakery. Diana was astonished, she had never known Pompeii to have an motus this bad! Soon she realized this wasn't the worst of it.
Later in the year there were more earthquakes. The wise old man said not to worry. But boy, he was wrong. At the end of 78 AD or at the start of 79 AD (however you would like to think of it ) Vesuvius started smoking, Then lava started pouring, Soon enough the volcano's lava had covered the hole city.
