Just noticed this and remarkable chance discovery of one of the most infamous characters in Roman times. The Masterpiece Theater ",
I, Claudius" presentation of Robert Graves work is one of my favorite series. Perfect casting of actor John Hurt as Caligula

Here is the link that shows some of their findings

Interesting article.  But what is with that first picture?  Very short archaeologist?  Very tall table?  Failed contestant on "How not to be seen"?

Strange.
