    The well-preserved remains of two men have been discovered in the Roman city of Pompeii, near Naples.
    The two bodies were killed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD which covered the ancient city in volcanic ash and froze it in time.
    The bodies are thought to be of a wealthy man and a slave and were found in a villa on the outskirts of Pompeii.
    Massimo Osanna, director of Pompeii Archeological Park, called the discovery "truly exceptional."
