Anthropologists from a very famous archaeological site made a sensational discovery some time ago that opens up fascinating scenarios and could lead us to learn more about life tens of centuries ago.

The site is famous all over the world and has already given us a closer look at the customs of the local population of the place, plagued by a disastrous natural event that leveled the city and the inhabitants.

The excavation area, which began in the mid-1700s, has continued to unearth almost untouched wonders. A real cultural heritage, which is today embellished with an extraordinary genetic discovery and which will soon be studied by scientists. But what literally left researchers speechless?

Exciting discovery made by anthropologists: what is it?

Archaeologists from the sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii unearthed the charred body of a man lying on a wooden bed in the 1960s. Its remains have been preserved until today and then analyzed with new existing technologies today. Well, the team led by forensic anthropologist Pier Paolo Petrone of Federico II University of Naples found traces of intact brain tissue in the skull.

“What is extremely rare is the complete preservation of the neural structures of a central nervous system from 2,000 years ago, in our case with unprecedented resolution,” the luminary said. This was possible because the sudden flash of heat scorched fat and tissue from the poor man’s body, effectively vitrifying his brain, which has reached the present day.
