It is in the Catholic tradition that she wasn't buried, in fact the wording makes us wonder if she actually died. The tradition is that she had an "assumption"-that is taken up to Heaven at the end of her life, body and soul. If there were people who opposed this view, it wasn't widespread. Impro…ved answer There are two tombs that are attributed to Mary. The first is a tomb located in the Kidron Valley, on the foothills of Mount of Olives, near the Church of All Nations and Gethsemane garden, originally just outside Jerusalem. Another possible tomb of the Virgin Mary is near Ephesus. We do not know which, if either, of these tombs is the correct one. However, if Mary had a tomb into which she was placed, it was not used for long, if at all. There are two thoughts here and the Church has left this question open: 1.) Mary did not die but was assumed, body and soul, into Heaven when her time on earth was completed. 2.) Mary did die and was buried. A short time (some say 3 days) after her death, she was assumed into heaven. Neither answer contradicts the dogma of the Assumption. (MORE)

However, on the Sunday morning after the crucifixion, just as Jesus himself had predicted, the body had gone and the tomb was found empty. On that same day sightings of Jesus were reported and the news had spread very quickly that Jesus had risen from death. Many sightings were made over the next few weeks - on one occasion by over 500 people at one time - and not of Jesus as a resuscitated corpse, but in a vibrant, radiant glorified state.

Pyroclastic flows are superheated rock and ash that move hundreds of miles per hour. This is generally in th…e late stages of an eruption, though. In cases like the famous eruption near Pompei, ash rains down from the eruption for a prolonged period of time, covering (and burying) plants and animals below, which can often preserve them for hundred of years.
