Claterna Emerges from the Italian Soil

After being buried for 1500 years, the Roman town of Claterna, bear Bologna, Italy, has begun to emerge from the soil. Excavations have already revealed patrician houses, metalworking sites and mosaic paving, as well as pottery and coins.

Once a prominent Roman town at the crossroads of two important roads, Claterna gradually declined and was abandoned in the 6th century.
