Mount Vesuvius erupted and destroyed Pompeii

Pompeii is a city in Italy. Mount Vesuvius is in Pompeii. One day the people in Pompeii realised that there was a lot of smoke coming from Mount Vesuvius. The water in the wells dried up. The next day Mount Vesuvius erupted. The very top of the mountain blew off. There was so much dust that it blocked out the sun. A lot of people in Pompeii died because their was so much dust. 2000 years later a man was digging a hole in his garden. While he was digging his shovel hit a wall. He dug deeper and he saw a house. He called the archaeologusts so they could examine it. It is now as it was 2000 years ago.
