Boscoreale

 

a city in Italy, 1.5 km north of Pompeii. The remains of a Roman villa destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79 are nearby. The villa is a most important source for the study of the Roman slave-holding economy and culture during the first century A.D. The estate’s main industry was viticulture and wine-making; oil production, field farming, and cattle breeding had an auxiliary importance. Excavations carried out in the 1890’s revealed residential buildings (with murals) and service buildings. A multitude of precious artifacts of the end of the first century B.C. and the first century A.D. were found (silver dishes with relief decorations, gold coins, and so on).
