Restorers give shape to Pompeii victims

Entombed in ash for more than 1,900 years, the tragic story behind this haunting image of what appears to be a child resting on its terrified mother's stomach is a step closer to being revealed. Restorers are working on the preserved plaster casts of 86 victims who died after Mount Vesuvius erupted in Pompeii in 79 AD. Experts are restoring the poignant remains for a forthcoming exhibition called Pompeii and Europe. [Photo/IC]
