  • The house called "the wooden plot" is one of the houses of the ancient Herculaneum, a Roman town that was completely covered with a thick layer of ash, lapilli and sedimentgenerated by the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D., disappearing from the seen for thousands of years. Paradoxically, the layer that covered the town guarded and protected it, so much so that, after almost 2000 years, unearthed, it gives us the great beauty created by the work of man. The house, as it is easy to guess, owes its denomination to a charred wooden plot, which constituted, one imagines with good reason, a kind of screen or folding door, able to separate the atrium from the tablino, and giving intimacy to the people who were in to the hall. The construction of the house probably dates back as far as the 1st century BC, and was unearthed by archaeological excavations that took place in 1930. The breadth, the presence within it of portions of mosaic, marble impluvium, and frescoes with various colors on the walls, indicate a patrician property.
