The most poignant scene was the triple burial of a petite woman lying on her side, facing two young children. The slender arms of the children reached out to the woman in an everlasting embrace. Pollen indicated that flowers had decorated the grave.

I think they died suddenly, were covered by sand and silt; the pollen=grave theory isn't convincing.

You mean pollen doesn’t equal flowers equals grave? Or area not green in past? I don’t understand.

Right, it is in the way they are arranged like they were alive when buried. They almost look like they were caught looking at each other. The mom looks like she is shocked with her mouth open. The hands look intertwined like they held each other as they died. It looks like they knew they were going to die and layed down and held each other to the end. It's the drama of the thing.
