Pub History Research in Italy - Herculaneum old pub.

Many pubs claim to be the oldest, and this old pub in Herculaneum claims to be at least as old as year 79 AD. As it was at the time covered in a pyroclastic flow of many metres of mud from the local Vesuvius volcano, and therefore much better preserved than Pompeii.
