Pompeii: Aug. 25, A.D. 79 1 a.m.: A cloud of gas and ash plunged down on the town; the hot breath of Vesuvius killed the fugitives in a fraction of a second. By studying bone fractures and the position of the remains, anthropologist Paolo Petrone and volcanologist Giuseppe Mastrolorenzo established beyond a doubt that the fugitives were wrapped in a 900-degree Fahrenheit cloud. They died instantly of thermal shock, not from slow suffocation as scientists long assumed.

The Gullah/Geechee people of the Lowcountry would often use sea-shell grave markers. One anthropologist in the early 1890s remarked that "nearly every grave has bordering or thrown upon it a few bleached sea-shells of a dozen different kinds." This practice has been traced back to the BaKongo belief that the sea shell encloses the soul's immortal presence. Some Gullah explain that they represent the sea ~ "The sea brought us, the sea shall take us back."
