Lost Worlds: The Other Pompeii: Life And Death In Herculaneum
The Other Pompeii: Life And Death In Herculaneum
SBS  |  April 27, 2014

Just 10 miles from Pompeii, along the ancient shoreline, 12 arched vaults are telling a whole new story about life was like before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. They contain the skeletons of no less than 340 people, that's 10% of the local population, killed by the volcano. Amongst them are the first new skeletons to be found in the area for 30 years: they're now the subject of a ground-breaking scientific investigation.
