Italian archaeologists have uncovered the bodies of two people killed in a volcanic eruption. The eruption destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii nearly 2,000 years ago. Officials said the remains of two people have been found. Those lying next to each other had a layer of ash at least two meters (6.5 ft) deep.


The skeletal remains are believed to be a rich man and his male slave was trying to escape death from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius about 2,000 years ago, Pompeii Archaeological Park director Massimo Osanna said That they are looking for a place to take refuge when a volcano erupts.


Parts of the skulls and bones of two men were found during excavations on the outskirts of the ancient Roman city destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 79 CE, a beautiful Mediterranean sea villa that is now in ruins. This is where the remains of the horse were found in the 2017 excavation.


Authorities said that looking at the cranial bones and teeth of a buried man, it was found out that he was a youth. He must be aged between 18 and 25 years. Also, the bone structure of the other person was strong, his age would be 30 to 40 years.
