Rome’s Sunken Secrets

Recommended Posts

From the Daily Mail:

Quote

Back in the 1st century it was the Las Vegas of ancient Rome, a ‘den of licentiousness and vice’, according to contemporary accounts, where the super-rich and powerful came to party and indulge their wildest desires. 

And while many of the city of Baiae’s scandals have been lost over time, a new documentary about the resort on the west coast of Italy that largely disappeared beneath the waves 1,700 years ago gives us fascinating glimpses into the opulence, debauchery and backstabbing it was renowned for.

Rome’s Sunken Secrets follows a series of dives led by underwater archaeologist Dr Barbara Davidde and involving historians and scientists from across the world.
