Pompeii was a large Roman town in the Italian region of Campania. 1,900 years ago due to a volcanic eruption in Mount Vesuvius thousands of people died and got buried under the ash. Records convey that the ash from the eruption was hundreds of feet into the air for 18 hours, which fell onto the doomed town, choking residents and covering buildings.

This deadly disaster left the town abandoned. Buried bodies were rediscovered from 9 meters below the Earth. Restorers of the Pompeii archeological site filled the dead bodies with the plaster casts to preserve them, but now they have found a new way to preserve the bodies.
