everything about this is fucking hilarious. i’m sorry, random pompeii man, but your death was some looney tunes bullshit and the framing of this photograph isn’t helping.

Allow me to tell you the story of the Barber-surgeon of Avebury. A 14th century corpse who appears to have decided to dig a hole at the base of one of the monoliths of Avebury’s stone circle. People speculate he was either searching for treasure or attempting to destabilize the stone in order to bury it in an effort to depaganize the prehistoric site. His body was found in 1938, and was determined in 1998 to have been, not crushed, but buried alive beneath the stone in the hole of his own making.
