An ancient Roman painting that remained buried in volcanic ash for nearly 1,800 years has only just revealed its true beauty.

Scientists have used a new type of high-resolution imagery to give life to the artwork, which had long been forgotten after one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in history – Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
