A horse that was petrified during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii in Italy was discovered in a barn outside the city walls. A group of archaeologists discovered the integrity of the body by injecting liquid plaster into the remaining body of the horse, which they could reach because of the ancient ash.

The horse is thought to have a length of about one meter and fifty inches (five feet) on the foot. The horse is thought to be a parade horse because there are traces of a harness with iron and bronze fittings next to the horse’s head. Previously, the skeletons of donkeys and mules were found in a barn in the area known as the Chaste Lovers House, but officials said that this new find was the first and only complete horse ever to be found in the ruined city. This horse, which is found in Pompeii with a full-shaped dog and pig, is the newest discovery among fully-preserved animals. The latest salvage excavations in the Civita Giuliana, where the tunnels were located, also included jugs, utensils and kitchen utensils from the same period.

Besides the horse, he also found the remains of pitchers, utensils and utensils and the grave of a man buried after a deadly explosion. This implies that people continue to live on the ruins or the ruins that survived after the disaster of the Veuz volcano in Pompeii. The traces and finds of this disaster, which happened almost 2,000 years ago in Pompeii, continue to be revealed today. Last month, archaeologists discovered the full skeleton of a young boy in a bathhouse, which is thought to have been completely excavated.
