Additional information concerning the dating debate of the Mt. Vesuvius eruption in AD 79 has surfaced from a study of certain amphorae discovered in a small "garum shop" on the eastern edge of Pompeii. In a recently published International Journal of Osteoarchaeology article, Dr. Alfredo Carannante explores the specifics of the seasonal production of the prized ‘fish sauce’.
Utilizing techniques of a ”close analysis of the fish skeletons”, Dr. Carannante determined species, gender, age and time of harvest as related to Pompeii’s destruction. While not definitive as yet, the Work adds to the body of evidence utilized to determine, with precision, the particulars of the historic event.
