Human Remains discovered when the city of Pompeii was unearthed after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Giuseppe Fiorelli took charge of the excavations in 1863. During early excavations of the site, occasional voids in the ash layer had been found that contained human remains. It was Fiorelli who realized these were spaces left by the decomposed bodies and so devised the technique of injecting plaster into them to recreate the forms of Vesuvius's victims.
Body cast of victim of Pompeii eruption. The Roman city of Pompeii, located in the Bay of Naples, Italy, was ruined and buried under thick layers of ash during an eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. Many of those buried under the ash were killed by falling buildings or other causes, such as poisonous fumes.
Pompeii Public Toilets - The Romans used a stick with a sponge on one end to clean themselves after defecating in a communal toilet. When finished with their business, they would pass it to the next guy in line. If the next guy happened to grab the wrong (dirty) end he was said to have "gotten the wrong end of the stick." The related version is "short end of the stick" (along with a scatological slang version).
