  • Description

    Italy.

    Full titles read: "TWILIGHT OF THE GODS - Come with the Pathetone man now to Paestum, Italy - where the once great Temples, and other wonders of the Ancients, are being excavated and restored."

    Very good L/S's and M/S's of the remnants of giant temples. Good M/S's of the large columns that make up structures.

    Intertitle reads: "There great columns supported the mighty Temples built by the Iucanians after their Victory over the Greeks of Posidonia - over 2,000 years ago."

    More footage of the excavation sight.

    Note: Good archaeology story.
