Caption: Bronze Age ivory head ornament. Restorer working to reconstruct the pieces of a head ornament discovered in the volcanic mud and ash cast of a Bronze Age village. The ornament, made from the tusks of wild boars, is being restored in the National Museum of Naples. Around 3500 years ago, a large eruption of Vesuvius destroyed this Bronze Age village. The volcanic mud and ash preserved the shape of the wooden buildings, along with their contents, in the same way as at Pompeii over a thousand years later. The site was discovered in 2001 at Nola, near Naples, Italy. Excavations have uncovered several huts, tools, pottery, and ornaments made from the tusks of wild boar.
