Digging for answers in the past
I’ve often wondered what it would be like to traipse across the globe like a female Indiana Jones, mining for ancient trinkets and the buried treasure of everyday life long forgotten.
Well archaeologists are at it again – digging deep to reveal the ancient city of Pozzuoli in Italy.
The verdict = he was off his rocker.
“It’s like someone — a president or a king or you know, Bill Gates — turning St. Peter’s into their entrance hall,” Darius Arya, one of the directors of the excavation, said during a break from the dig in the Roman Forum in the heart of Italy’s capital.
I sometimes wonder what future archaeologists will think of us when they unearth our cities.
