When did it happen?
Nobody is quite sure of the actual date or time but it is thought that the erruption happened on either November the 23rd or August the 24th. The year the Eruption happened was .79AD In a letter sent to some one it says that the erruption happened the 24th of August but other information points towards the 23rd of November. Firstly a coin was found in a lady's purse that couldn't of been minted before the second week in September, and Secondly if it had happened in August fresh summer fruit would still be in stock. Only preserved and dried summer fruit was found in shops.The thing that is known about the date and time is the erruption lasted for two days, spreading ash over a large area.
