1900 years on and still vibrant.

College of the Augustals Herculaneum. The vibrance in this room is stunning. Interesting things to take into consideration are the way the blocks (bricks) are laid in a diamond orientation, the lower bricks are slim and similar to modern ones, also you can see the end of the charred roof timbers.

A super capture, Ollie, must have been really impressive when it was built, judging from what we can see here 😃👍🏻
Trev 😀
This really shows the skill of the builders which must have been way ahead of their time! Beautiful frescos too, a joy to see.
