Plaster casts of bodies on new exhibition in Pompeii
Plaster casts of bodies on new exhibition in Pompeii

A new exhibition has been opened in the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, where you can see four plaster casts of the bodies of the victims of Vesuvius up close. As park director Gabriel Zuchtriegel says: “The casts of the victims show us the agony of the people who died during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79”.

Only one of the bodies was discovered at the site of exposure. It belonged to a 1.8 m tall man who died lying on his back with a tunic. The other people are an adult, an elderly person and a teenager. Traces of sandals, tunics, a wooden bowl, a stick and a bag have been preserved.

From what I managed to read, the new exhibition is located near Porta di Nocera.
