Unearthing an Ancient Roman City: Archaeologists Encounter a Frozen Sea of People

In AD 79, the Roman city of Pompeii was “razed to the ground” when the volcano Vesuvius erupted, killing an estimated 2,000 people. Archaeologists found many petrified bodies when excavating this place.

Archaeologists unearthed several petrified people in the ruins of the ancient Roman Empire city of Pompeii (now Italian territory). These bodies became evidence of a terrible tragedy that occurred almost 2,000 years ago.

Specifically, in the year 79, the volcano Vesuvius suddenly “woke up” and erupted violently. The city of Pompeii, Herculaneum and several settlements at the foot of this volcano were the most affected.

Among them, Pompeii is the place “wiped out” completely by the Vesuvius volcanic disaster. Fiery red lava flowed down, carrying many large rocks along the way and creating huge columns of ash. Among them, Pompeii is the place “wiped out” completely due to the Vesuvius volcanic disaster. Fiery red lava flowed down, carrying many large rocks along the way and creating huge columns of ash.

Because Pompeii was located right at the foot of the Vesuvius volcano, the entire city was quickly buried under dozens of meters of volcanic rock and ash.

These victims died in various positions. Many corpses have the common characteristic of freezing immediately when exposed to extremely H๏τ lava. Others died suffocated by gases and ashes.

Over time, they become petrified people. The bodies of the victims were preserved almost intact after almost 2,000 years.

Not just humans, a number of animals raised by families in Pompeii also did not escape and were buried with their owners.

After this tragedy, Pompeii became a land ᴅᴇᴀᴅ and uninhabited for many centuries.
