Ancient Vesuvius eruption ’turned victim’s brain into glass’

Italy’s Mount Vesuvius was so hot when it erupted that it turned one victim’s brain to glass, scientists have said. The volcano erupted in 79 AD, killing thousands and destroying Roman settlements near modern-day Naples. Researchers said fragments of a glassy, black material were extracted from the victim’s skull which are believed to be the vitrified remains of the man’s brain.
