Pompeii to Offer Live Excavation Experience

Breaking News

Visitors to Pompeii will be able to experience a live dig next month in the ancient Roman town that was buried in Mount Vesuvius' catastrophic eruption in 79 A.D.

The site of the open-door excavation is the so-called House of the Chaste Lovers, a building that came to light in 1987 but which has always been closed to the public.

Visitors will be allowed to enter several section of the 2,000-year-old house through suspended walkways, while other parts of the excavation yard will be protected by glass screens.
