This amazing animation created by Zero Animations gives you an incite as to what it would have been like as a series of volcanic eruptions from Mount Vesuvius destroyed the city in AD 79.
Terrifying and awe-inspiring are words that I would describe this animation.
Video description from YouTube:
A Day in Pompeii, a Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, was held at Melbourne Museum from 26 June to 25 October 2009. Over 330,000 people visited the exhibition — an average of more than 2,700 per day — making it the most popular traveling exhibition ever staged by an Australian museum.
Zero One created the animation for an immersive 3D theatre installation which gave visitors a chance to feel the same drama and terror of the town’s citizens long ago, and witness how a series of eruptions wiped out Pompeii over 48 hours. This video is available in full HD stereo.
