A new “dramatic and exceptional” discovery in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii has been made during ongoing excavation work: a skeleton of a victim believed to have been around 35 years old when he died. He was disabled due to a leg injury and unable to escape when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, burying the city in rock and ash.
