the scientists bring about new information all the time with their new discoveies creating more questions .. but overall we learn more when new sites are excavated like these ancient aqueducts in rome ..

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 2014 1:50 PM

The mission was for Vicovaro and his team to go down access wells and clamber through crevices to access.These eleven aqueducts were built in ancient Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometers underground. It is interesting how modernized this system was. You wonder how long this took to build the aqueducts to build, considering the limited technology they had. This provides evidence of their engineering skills.

Sea gives up a portrait of ancient Rome

Sea gives up a portrait of ancient Rome | Ancient rome | Scoop.it

FOR 2000 years the ancient and decomposing hulk lay buried in deep, muddy waters, off the Italian coast.

Everybody knew it was down there because for more than 80 years local fishermen had been collecting bits of Roman artefacts and pots in their nets.

Finds of this nature are not unusual in Italian waters, which are littered with treasures going back thousands of years.
