Remains of decapitated Pompeii victim found

Pompeii- Parco Archeologico

Lesions found on the newly discovered skeleton's leg, at the tibia level, could be the sign of a bone infection, which may have caused the man to have significant difficulties in walking and may have prevented him from escaping at the first signs of an impending eruption.

On Tuesday, archaeologists revealed they had discovered the skeleton of a victim who died attempting to flee the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but was ultimately killed when a very big stone landed on his upper body.

This skeleton appears to be from a man who survived the initial explosion and was fleeing the doomed city.

That wasn't the end of it: As the man was thrown back by the flow, a large stone-presumably a door jamb-fell on his head, which has not been recovered. It is now known as one of the most catastrophic volcanic eruptions in European history.

New excavations at the Pompeii site began in March, in a section called "Regio V", which has been largely unexcavated and hasn't been researched since the postwar era.

Last February, at another excavation site, scientists also discovered the skeleton of a 7- or 8-year-old child who they think was seeking safety in a public bath, but was suffocated by clouds of ash, according to The Telegraph.

Argentina hoping it's Messi's year at World Cup
Messi moved to Barcelona at the age of 13 and would have been eligible to play for Spain. It's important to start off with a win to build confidence.

The team had found illegal tunnels dug by illicit treasure seekers and began excavating the area to protect the artifacts there.

As of this writing, the man's head remains buried under the stone, and it is unclear when, or if, it will be removed. Unfortunately the horse's remains were found by looters who built illegal tunnels beneath a villa.

This process involves injecting liquid plaster into the cavities left behind when bodies encased in volcanic ash from the eruption decomposed.
