I.10.4 Pompeii. May 2010. P1, east wall, with ancient hole made by fugitives trying to escape in 79AD. According to Allison, the 10 skeletons discovered in this corridor might have been part of the same party as the 3 skeletons found with a pick and a hoe in room 19 on the other side of the hole. They appear to have been people who probably suffocated whilst trying to escape during the final eruption. They included at least 3 children under the age of 5. The age of the children and the victims being on both sides of the wall and with tools would suggest they were probably victims rather than post-eruption intruders. See Allison, P.M., 2004.  Pompeian Households: An analysis of the material culture.  Los Angeles: UCLA Cotsen Institute. (p. 24;  p. 180).
