At the time of the eruption of Vesuvius, unlike Pompeii, which was buried under a rain of ash and lava, Herculaneum was overwhelmed by a flood of mud and volcanic debris.
When they solidified they started to preserve, much better than at Pompeii, the tops of buildings as well as all organic materials, like wood, fabrics, remnants of food, etc.., so offers us a unique insight into the private lives of Ancient Romans.
