8.00 p.m. |HINT| Greek Cities in Italy
Nearly 2,800 years ago, a group of Greek settlers landed on the coast of Italy, an event that marked the start of the process that created Magna Graecia--(Latin for Greater Greece)--Greek colonization of Southern Italy and Sicily. Explore the computer-recreated streets of the original Greek colonies as we walk through Cumae, Pasteum, Puteoli, and Neapolis, reconstructed using the most advanced computer graphics.
10.00 p.m. |HINT| The Lost City of Roman Britain
Ignored by Saxon and medieval settlers, the remains of the Roman town of Calleva Atrebatum were bypassed by history. Today, all that remains is a wall enclosing empty fields and a ghostly silence. In 1889, the Victorians undertook excavations, setting out to recover the complete plan of a Roman town--although after 20 years they wrote it off. A century later, archaeologist Mike Fulford discovered that Calleva was a thriving industrial city and capital of the Roman county of Atrebates. We'll see how it changed throughout Roman occupation. The Victorians believed that the town came to a natural end with the fall of the Roman Empire and the demise of town life. But, in a further twist, Mike Fulford unearthed evidence that not only was the town still thriving at the end of the Roman period, but life here continued throughout the 5th, 6th, and perhaps even the 7th centuries AD.
