Headless ’Pompeii-dead’ found in Italy

POMPEII – Researchers have found a decapitated body found at excavations in Pompeii, which in 79 a.d. under the ashes and stones from the volcano Vesuvius, was buried. It is going to be the remains of a man who is probably 35 years old at the time of his death, reports news agency ANSA.

Archaeologists suspect that the man to the eruption looked when he was hit by a boulder of 300 pounds. Therefore he lost his head. An injury to the leg of the man would not have made it in time to flee the violence of nature.

The leader of the excavation at the ancient Roman city, Massimo Osanna, called the finding “a dramatic and exceptional.”
