Partially mummified remains of a man discovered in Pompeii have raised questions among archeologists about burial practices in the Ancient Roman city, where deceased adults were traditionally cremated.

“It is a very important and unique discovery,” Llorenç Alapont, a researcher at the Department of Prehistory, Archeology and Ancient History at the University of Valencia and one of the people in charge of the excavation, told Efe.EFE
