Boscoreale located to the north of Pompeii is at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius. Some identify it with the Pagus Augustus Felix Suburbanus. Thanks to its fertile land, it had been inhabited since protohistory (Fossakultur tombs) and was resettled after the eruption of 79 A.D. (Via Casone Grotta thermal baths from the 2nd-3rd century A.D.).

During the Roman era, it was home to many villas and farms that cultivated grapes, olives and cereals.
