In the suburbs of Pompeii, archaeologists have found a room where slaves lived: very small and dark
In the suburbs of the city of Pompeii, which was wiped out by a volcanic eruption, archaeologists have found a slave room in excellent condition. The room was part of a villa. The room was 16 square metres in size. There were three wooden beds and a chest with objects. Archaeologists assume that a family that worked in the house could live there.

Under the beds were amphorae for storing personal belongings and ceramic jugs. In addition, there was a wooden chest in the room with metal and fabric objects resembling parts of a horse harness. On one of the beds was a chariot shaft.
The beds were made of boards intertwined with ropes. One of them was smaller, 1.4 metres high, and probably a child slept on it. The room had one small window at the top. In general, the room looked very simple and poor. Archaeologists continue excavations.
