The Together Forever mummy also known as: Two Women Embrace mummy, The Bodies of Lovers, Mummies of Pompeii), is an ancient Rome period mummy. The mummy was found by Giuseppe Fiorelli, who was in charge of the excavations in 1863. This is just one of many that was found, they are now used in many museums to show one of the tragic histories of ancient Rome, the eruption of mount Vesuvius.

BiographyEdit

This is just one example of the many mummified specimens found after the famous, 79 A.D. eruption of Vesuvius in Pompeii. Unfortunately there is not exclusive information on this specific mummified duo. Since there were so many mummified corpses- most so covered in ash it was hard to make out their expression, let alone their gender, class or age.

MummificationEdit

corpses of people and animals killed by the pyroclastic flow and buried by the hot ash. The ash solidified before the corpses decayed so a mould of Vesuvius’s victims remained.

StudiesEdit

PathologyEdit

Additional InfoEdit

Found Originally: Pompei, Province of Naples, Campania, Italy
