Read the paragraph and pick out the content
moment of discovery occurred in February 1863, when a workman
accidentally made a hole in a mound at the site. Fiorelli noticed
that there was a cavity of some sort. He ordered liquid plaster to
be poured, into the cavity and given time to solidify. He had the
surrounding ash removed, revealing a complete figure that was
uncannily life-like. Eventually, he was responsible for many victims
being uncovered by this technique, and people's fascination grew as
the intimate details of Pompeii's tragic story were disclosed. The
plaster casts fixed the terror and desperation of that long ago
disaster in a kind of eternal present.
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.
