Uncovering the Ancient Baths of Ercolano

The Miraculous Baths of Herculaneum

In AD 79, a river of hot mud and volcanic debris, the fallout from the eruption of Vesuvius, flooded the seaside town of Herculaneum covering it up for nearly two millennia until its rediscovery in the mid-1700s. Follow archaeologist Darius Arya in an exclusive exploration of the suburban Baths of Herculaneum, along the Bay of Naples. Completed destroyed by the eruption of the volcano, Herculaneum was miraculously preserved under meters of hot mud and ash flows. Arya brings you into the spaces of the baths, as if you were an ancient Roman bather.
