Good footage of the excavation of the ancient town of Herculaneum in Italy.
Full titles read: "THE CITY THAT VANISHED - Two thousand years ago Herculaneum, Italy, was engulfed by the great same disaster that overwhelmed Pompeii. Today the work of uncovering the buried streets is actively progressing."
Several shots of the excavators using pickaxes and shovels to dig through to the buried town which the commentator informs us has been buried since 79 AD after an eruption by the volcano Mount Vesuvius. L/S's of the worker carrying large bags of "valuable finds" through the ruined streets. L/S's of very old jugs. Good M/S of man holding up ancient bath tub. Various shots of the excavation continuing.
