New findings in Pompeii highlight the life of the middle class in the coded city

The Archaeological Park of Pompeii, one of the main tourist attractions in Italy, released the recent findings on Saturday. Its director, Gabriel Zᴜchtriegel, said that the excavation of rooms in the “domestic” home, discovered for the first time in 2018, had revealed precious details about the domestic environment of the common cities of the city, which was destroyed by 79 e.p.c.

Over the past decades, excavation has been completed to a great extent in its many elaborately painted villas with frescoes from Pompeii’s upper-class residents. but archeological activity at the expanded site, near present-day Naples, has become increasingly closed to the lives of the middle class, as well as servants and other enslaved people.

“Throughout the Roman Empire, there was a large part of the population that lived with its social status and for which it was the ‘everyday job’ was something less than done,” said Zᴜchtriegel. “Up a class vulnerable to political crises and food shortages, but also ambitious to climb the social ladder.”

The findings revealed on Saturday included furniture and household objects in the house, which was nicknamed the Casa del Larario for the area of the house dedicated to domestic spirits known as lares. The house unearthed in 2018 has a patio.

Zᴜchtriegel pointed out that although the patio also had an exceptionally well-adored Cistercian, “avoid me, the (economic) resources for fᴜeron surfaces to decorate the five rooms of the house”. One room had the walls without peeping and a dirt floor that apparently tasted like a warehouse.

In the bedroom, the archaeologists found the remains of the bed frame with traces of fabric from the pillow. The type of bed is identical to three cot-type beds unearthed last year in a small room in another residence that archaeologists believe doubled as a storage room and dormitory for a family of enslaved inhabitants of Pompeii.

The finds from the bedroom found on Saturday also included the remains of a wooden chest with the lid open. In addition to the weight of the beams and the roofing sheets that collapsed as a result of the volcanic explosion, seriously damaging the trunk, among the objects found inside there was an oil lamp decorated with a bas-relief that represented the ancient Greek deity Zeᴜtransformed en ᴜn agᴜila. Nearby was a small round table with three legs, similar to the decorative tables that are in fashion today.

Exposure to the warehouse revealed a wooden cabinet, its backboard still intact but the shelves toppling over. Archaeologists believe that the cupboard had at least four paper doors and had several kitchen utensils and dishes nearby. The excavators encontraron ᴜna hinge of the enclosure.

Other objects found in the house inclᴜyen ᴜn a fragment of what had been ᴜn a translucent plate with an edge in brilliant hues of cobalt blue and emerald, and ᴜn burner of incienso well conserved, cᴜna-shaped.
