1.10.4 Pompeii. May 2010. Room 19, glass case with remains of bones of fugitives.  Originally three skeletons were found in room 19 on 29th April 1931 near to the doorway to the peristyle at ground level.  Maiuri identified them as two adults and one juvenile. These skeletons were removed.   Found with them were a mattock and a pick-axe, perhaps used to make the holes in the south and west walls to help them escape. 
These tools can be seen in the glass case but with reconstructed wooden handles.  The other skeletons, approximately ten of them, were found a few days later above the corridor P1.  They were found 2.5 metres above the ground. They seemed to have fallen from an upper floor, one on top of another, so their bones were intermingled.  All of these bones from corridor P1 were collected and moved to Room 19 for display in the glass case.  Some of the bones, not needed for the display, can still be seen in a pit in the lower right corner of the photo.
