As the humming of the Time Machine faded, the boys opened the Time Machine cockpit. A mountain majestically stood over the bay in front of them.

"So this is the Bay of Naples," said Billy. "I can see why the Romans built cities here."

"Yes," agreed Cindy, "Pompeii and Herculaneum were supposedly among the most beautiful Roman cities, but they were covered by ash and mud when the volcano erupted. It's that ash and mud that preserved what remains of those cities today."

"A lot of rich people had villas here. They had all the latest styles and lots of artwork," said Candy.

Bobby stared suspiciously at the mountain. "It looks ok now," he said finally.

"It will look even better with some coasters on it!" replied Billy. "Come on, let’s go!"

Notes from Katatude:
"Mount Vesuvius is a large active volcano lying within the arms of a much larger, ancient volcano named Mount Somma. Vesuvius erupted disastrously in 79 A.D.

For the next 1500+ years, the towns it buried in ash, lava and mud lay undiscovered, undisturbed and forgotten. In the 1600's the towns were rediscovered and excavations began. My scenario shows two of these towns, Pompeii and Herculaneum near the foot of Mount Vesuvius and Mount Vesuvius itself.

Authentic within the constraints of the game."
