More Info

This BBC documentary follows Alexander Armstrong and Dr Michael Scott as they explore the underground secrets of Ancient Rome. The pair take us through the icy, crystal clear waters of subterranean aqueducts that feed the Trevi fountain and two thousand year old sewers which still function today. The laser scans used to map these hidden treasures help to explore the Roman infrastructure and ingenuity, revealing for the first time the complex network of tunnels, chambers and passageways without which ancient Rome could not have functioned as a city of a million people.

Guided by Rome’s Underground Archaeology Unit, the team is given unprecedented access to some of Rome most astonishing underground treasures. Access was often complex but exciting - abseiling 20 metres down through a manhole cover into underground quarries or delicately picking their way through water filled tunnels in near darkness. The result is some of the most comprehensive scanning ever achieved in Rome, in an unprecedented level of colour, detail and accuracy.

A truly fascinating programme that takes the viewer off the beaten track and into those parts of Ancient Rome that we never get to visit.
