The skeletons are exceptionally well preserved. They were in a cellar in a villa on the outskirts of Pompeii. There, the two likely hid during the eruption of the nearby volcano Vesuvius in AD 79. In 2017, remains of horses were also discovered near the same site.
Italian Culture Minister, Dario Franceschini, spoke of an “extraordinary discovery”. Archaeologists are particularly enthusiastic about the many details on the remains.
The wealthy man of supposedly high status was between 30 and 40 years old. Traces of a woolen cloak were found around his neck. The other man was about 20 years old. Investigators deduce that he was a slave from his bruised ribs, which indicate that he was doing hard work.
Their clenched fists, among other things, show that they died from the effects of the volcanic eruption, the researchers said. Pompeii had about 13,000 inhabitants when Vesusvius erupted.
