STORY: These objects are shedding light

on what life was like in Pompeii

Location: Pompeii, Italy

Archaeologists discovered four new rooms

in a previously excavated house

filled with household objects

The house was in one of

Pompeii’s largest neighborhoods

now called the

Regio V archaeological park
