  • The Oscans
    • Pompeii was under the Oscans from 800-750BC
    • They were local inhabitants of Campania, a surrounding area
    • Overall we don't know much about the Oscans
    • They established the original city at the site
    • They gave the city it's name, 'Pomepii'
    • The Oscan language carried on being used despite being occupied by invaders at a later date
    • They occupied regions 7 and 8 (you can see this by the irregular pattern in the layout of that area)
    • They brought a farming community into Pomepii
