Skull Storage

Throughout the hundreds of years of excavations in Pompeii, most excavators were not very interested in the remains of Pompeii's ancient inhabitants. They piled up their finds with little in the way of ceremony or labeling. One of the storage rooms deep within the city walls is filled with ancient human skulls.

There's at least one dissertation hidden in that pile of bones.

Just a few rooms away are the skeletons of 9 horses.
