Found this on the internet:  "Sept. 29, 2008 -- Remains of rotten fish
entrails have helped establish the precise dating of Pompeii's destruction,
according to Italian researchers who have analyzed the town's last batch of
garum, a pungent, fish-based seasoning."  You can read the article at:

a description of making garum in the article as well.
