Beautifully preserved wooden partition in a villa at Herculaneum, standing in their original position but showing the effects of having been subject to hot lava from Vesuvius. The villa is fascinating and even has charred beds too

This villa comes to us in an almost complete state. The wooden partition is a unique piece to survive the catastrophe.
