Abstract

Studies of some 70 bore holes around ancient Pompeii, on the southwestern slope of the Somma-Vesuvius volcano, allow the reconstruction of Holocene environments earlier than the A.D. 79 eruption, during Roman times, on the Sarno coastal plain. It provides an understanding of how the Romans used the local natural resources. In addition, the shoreline location and position of the ancient harbor prior to A.D. 79 have been controversial. Therefore the A.D. 79 eruption deposits form a well-recognizable stratigraphic marker that facilitates paleogeographical reconstruction
