Bodies discovered at excavation in Pompei

The latest excavations of the historic Pompei site, have unearthed two new victims of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Thought to be the bodies of a wealthy landowner and his slave, the almost perfectly preserved bodies were wearing woolen clothing, indicating that the eruption occured in October rather than August, as was previously thought.
