Pompeii was 쿫uried four to six metres deep under volcanic ash after the 쿮ruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. 쿟he figures bore marks of injury on the head and body that 퀇ere apparently caused by pieces of falling rock.

Pompeii, which 퀇as rediscovered in 1748, has been about three quarters 쿮xcavated with some buildings left standing up to the first 쿯loor.
