Absolutely ^^  it's simply amazing to see what they're still finding there isn't it.  I was just reading down the bottom of that article and it quotes this:

Quote

The most eye-catching one, however, was the skeleton of a man in 2018 whose torso was found protruding from a large stone block which had crushed his head.

He appeared to have survived the initial eruption, and attempted to flee as volcanic ash blanketed the city, but was slowed down by a limp and was probably overcome by lethal gases, experts said.

What an incredible find, a man's story as he attempted to flee the eruption, but died, sadly.  :o
