Aphrodisias is a magnificent city of marble dedicated to the Greek goddess Aphrodite. It is widely recognized as one of the best-preserved sites in the Classical World. Although forgotten until the mid-20th century, the city's remarkable state of preservation led to comparisons with Pompeii. A devastating earthquake in the 7th century destroyed the city and damage caused to the remaining buildings is still plainly visible. Watch as the city is recreated by a team of historical detectives who use evidence from recent excavations, scientific studies and historical documents to piece together clues as to what ancient Aphrodisias looked like.
