VI.15, Herculaneum. September 2004. 
Excavation in north-west corner, entrance doorway in lower photo, looking south across rectangular pit. 
The rectangular pit in the centre of the room (0.50m by about 0.70m) was filled with eruptive material, proving that it had been open at the time of the eruption and was then filled by the pyroclastic material. This open pit would certainly have disrupted any commercial activity in the shop.
