An ancient construction site was discovered in Pompeii. The discovery took place in the domus in Regio IX (insula 10). The finds include: construction tools, stacked tiles, bricks and lime.

According to researchers, construction work in the uncovered house lasted until the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE. According to scientists, the amphorae found in the house were supposed to be used to extinguish lime, which in turn was used to apply plaster. Tools were found in various parts of the house, such as hoes used for preparing mortar and processing lime, and a lead weight that helped build vertical walls.
