If you have ever wondered what lurks beneath Rome’s cobbled streets, then ROME’S INVISIBLE CITY is for you!
This BBC 1 documentary explains the work of ScanLAB Projects to map the underbelly of Rome’s streets – with some amazing footage and 3D scanning of the underworld that contributed to the success of the Roman Empire.
Follow presenter Alexander Armstrong and Dr Michael Scott as they go potholing beneath Rome’s surface, into sewers, secret tunnels and catacombs. Puzzled about what happens beneath Rome Opera – or how Roman concrete contributed to the Roman Empire’s success? Your questions are answered.
A sequel to the documentary is due for release in 2016 – see Dr Michael Scott’s website for more information.
