How much more can you find in Rome?

Last week, workers working at the rugby stadium in Flaminio found a city of tombs. A separate dig a bit up north on the Via Flaminia revealed the tomb of Marcus Nonius Macrinus, considered to be the character that inspired the film "Gladiator". The buildings here are apparently well preserved because they were buried under mud deposited by the Tevere. Meanwhile, on the Palatine Hill, in the heart of ancient Rome, it is believed that the underground passageway recently found was where Emperor Caligula was murdered by his own guards. Rome continues to grow as a city - into the future and into the past!
