Read the paragraph and pick out the content
Pompeii, volcanic ash had been the cause of a sort of preservation
miracle. During the later phases of the eruption, this ash enveloped
many of the victims and then solidified around them, leaving
body-shaped cavities behind when the flesh decayed. Fiorelli was the
first to realise the possibility that there were human remains
buried in the ruins of the city, and that their impressions might
have been left deep in the sandy covering of volcanic ash.
Once again, keep in mind that the question requires you to
identify 3 key areas:
1. The problems
when he began his work.
2. The methods he employed to restore the ancient city
3. How he used the volcanic
ash to produce his most dramatic discoveries.
