At a site known as the "Pompeii of Japan," archaeologists have discovered the remains of an armor-clad man believed to date to the sixth century. The warrior was facing Mount Haruna, and scholars theorize he was attempting to calm the wrath of the volcano when he was buried by molten ash. Find out more in the feature by Sean O'Hare at the Daily Mail, which includes some fine photos and a brief video in Japanese.
