  • Description

    Titles read: 'THE PAST ARISES!'

    Italy.

    Various shots of archaeologists working to uncover the ancient Roman city of Herculaneum. Commentator says it was covered with lava from the Vesuvius volcano more than 1,800 years ago.

    A man clears rubble from a Roman soup terrine. Another clears rubble from a mosaic floor. We see workers walking along a Roman road that has been cleared, with low houses either side - quite fascinating. Men clean the dirt from whole buildings.

    Shots of a carved statue that was found and a wall mosaic being cleaned.
