Mosaics, tablets, a mass grave, and new lighting for the Roman Forum

During the summer months, archaeologists and other classical researchers studying the Mediterranean region leave their ivory towers and head into the field.

This writer summarized some of the more interesting finds of this past summer. While certainly not an exhaustive list, it provides a useful starting point for armchair archaeologists and others interested in the classical past.
