New Food Shop Uncovered in Pompeii

Archaeologists in Pompeii have unveiled a new thermopolium or hot food shop uncovered last year.

Love the animals in the frescoes. Pompeii gives one the impression that all sorts of Roman surfaces were painted, not just in the houses of the wealthy but in what seem like regular places of business: food shops, brothels, bakeries. It seems like the ancient world was a brightly colored place.
