Horse in Pompeii – level 3
Archaeologists unveiled the full remains of a horse that was swamped by lava during the volcanic eruption at Pompeii.
They made the discovery during an investigation into grave robber tunnels. Italian investigators intercepted the tunnels built by thieves last August.
The animal appears surprisingly big and most likely belonged to a rich family. Archaeologists made a plaster cast of the horse, which still had its bronze and iron harness on. Mount Vesuvius’ eruption in ad 79 buried the horse, stable and villa.
