Centuries-Old Cemetery Found Below Uffizi Gallery in Florence

Centuries-Old Cemetery Found Below Uffizi Gallery in Florence | Unique local spots, local flavours and local stories of Europe | Scoop.it

A cemetery dating to the 5th-6th century AD resurfaced below the Uffizi Gallery in Florence during the excavation works to expand the museum.


Workers found sixty skeletons, buried two by two, head-to-foot, which made researchers think that they were buried to save space and in a hurry and therefore they could have been the victims of plague or some other infectious disease.


The small necropolis is located under the Magliabechiana Library.

Grotte di Frasassi: Italy's Most Spectacular Caves

Grotte di Frasassi: Italy's Most Spectacular Caves | Unique local spots, local flavours and local stories of Europe | Scoop.it

Exploring the Frasassi caves, Italy's largest and most famous complex cave system

One hour from Ancona, in the Marche region, is the town of Genga; with a population of less than 2,000 people, the Gengarini are literally standing on top of one of Europe’s most spectacular sights: Grotte di Frasassi. You can easily imagine yourself to be in a Jules Verne novel as you travel through the Frasassi caves, Italy's largest and most famous complex cave system. Dating as far back as 180 million years ago and extending for 35 km, this subterranean world of calcareous rock formations first opened to the public in 1974, and visitor numbers have just passed the ten million mark; that’s an impressive average of 256,400 people each year.[...]
