Final task

Q1 streets, houses, market squares, shops and even small objects had all been preserved by the larva.

Q2 because the massive down fall of ash killed many people but also preserved them. As the ash hardened and the body's rotted away a cavity was left behind.

Q3 they pored plaster inside the cavity, the statues where revealed.

Q4 historians need archeologists and archeologists need historians. Although they work in different feilds, they both inform us on the past. Historians need Archeologists because archeologists look into the past of the human kind by digging up ruins and artefacts that each tell a story from the past, this information helps historians right up there reports.
