Evaporating blood and exploding skull – so cruel, the victims of Vesuvius died

The eruption of mount Vesuvius nearly two thousand years ago is a reminder about the violence of nature over man. Contributed to its fame, Pliny the Elder witnessed the eruption. The tried, undaunted by the force of Nature to save his friend Pomponianus. For the posthumous fame also ensured that the houses and streets of Pompeii of ash have been covered, and partly in the Original state, the times have survived. The killed residents left cavities in the ash, as it had fallen and suffocated. Casts of the cavities, as the dead have rested as statues two thousand years.

it seems peaceful to Die

With all the horrors of the outbreak, the dead looked peaceful and intact. Because they choked in volcanic gases and their intact bodies were buried by the rain of ash. The man thought at least. New studies show that these dead died far terrible. Apparently, it was where it was, and how close you lived to the volcano.

In a study published in the scientific organ of the "PLOS One", showed the Italian researchers, that the inhabitants died by Choking in the ash rain. In fact, many of the auxiliary were killed-less residents of the gaseous heat waves. These were not moving so fast that Escape was possible. In the affected areas they produced so fast so much heat that the bodies of the victims of vaporized liquids. "These kind of studies are of great importance, not only because of the historical reconstruction of the events from the Roman period, but also because they provide basic information for the assessment of the volcanic risk in densely populated areas," says Pier Paolo Petrone, the main author of the study.

death due to heat cloud

This study is based on the examination of skeletal remains of some 300 Victims. You still had time to escape after the outbreak in the direction of the sea. In the boat houses of Herculaneum, about 15 kilometres from Pompeii, were you then. Until a heat wave through the city swept. You radiated temperatures of between 400 and 900 degrees Celsius. Worst of all, This wave reached an explosive speed of about 300 kilometers per hour.

The temperature rose so steeply that the steam in the inside of a Body, torn from the body, and led to injuries of the skull. Photos of the Remains show fractures, in which the pieces were straight from the surface blasted.

No Escape is possible

Even if death was like something out of a horror movie, he at least very quickly. In "Popular Science" said the volcanologist Giuseppe Mastro Lorenzo, the different Ruins in the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. He does not accept that the old suffocation theory is also the case in Pompeii. The death has occurred by heat shock, "the Post-Mortem consequences for the bodies of the victims were in these cities due to the distance to the Vesuvius differently". Herculaneum was much closer to the volcano so that the heat body tissue and fluids evaporated. In the more distant Pompeii, the heat waves enough to kill, but she's not vaporized the tissue. Ash and any gases would have then covered the bodies.

"We know that the first cause of death is the high temperature no mechanical influences or suffocation," said Mastro Lorenzo. For today this means that you can not rain, to trust that there is a longer warning time, as in the case of a ash or a lava tongue. A gaseous heat-wave, which propagates with 300 kilometers per hour, there is today no Escape, if not before the outbreak is evacuated.
