Brick Ovens pre-Vesuvius

Pompeii astounded me. It is a city that came to a deadly standstill when Vesuvius blew in 79AD. The excavated ruins are so extensive that yesterday I could not see nearly all of the city and only about 7 of the 28 bakeries. These are a few shots of the ovens.

The object in the foreground was the flour mill. The volcano is in the distance.
