How was Akrotiri preserved so well?

Akrotiri will surely impress you. Why?
The successive waves of ash from the huge volcanic eruption of the 17th century BC carried away the roofs and the upper parts of buildings in Akrotiri. After the volcanic eruption and deposition of volcanic material that led to the burial of the village, torrential rain followed, which eroded pumice and ash. The rain carried mud into the ground floors of the buildings, which led to the preservation of both their contents and the floors above!
