More from the Jashemski Archive compared with pompeiiinpictures

Here are more photos from the Jashemski Archive and pompeiiinpictures, this time comparing 1968 and 2005. These are from the Complesso dei Riti magici or the Magic Rites Complex II.1.12.

The two pilaster paintings shown in May 2005 were in the Schola Armaturarum at the time of its collapse in November 2010, and they may or may not have been destroyed.
Does anyone know what happened to them?

This comparison also highlights the fact that many of our pictures are now 10 years old.
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that we are coming back to live in the UK.
This will allow us to make more frequent trips to Pompeii than has been possible from Australia.
We intend to retake all the photos, highlighting the improvements made over the years.
