The past is so well-preserved in Herculaneum that you will see relics such as clay pots, still stored as they were when the volcano erupted. Herculaneum was a wealthier town than Pompeii. Though some skeletons lie amonst the luxurious remins, the mood of the town is not as somber as that of Pompeii, since it is believed that most residents of Herculaneum successfully fled the eruption.
