When The Romans Ruled Over Africa
Learning From The DeadStreaming Video - 2006
When ground was broken for a luxury hotel in modern-day Hammamet, Tunisia, no one was expecting to find what has turned out to be the largest Roman necropolis in North Africa. In this program, necropolis expert Marc Griesheimer collaborates with archaeologist Aicha ben Abed and other specialists to piece together fragile clues to the history of the region. Painstaking analysis of the human remains and funerary relics fleshes out the details of life and death of the ordinary people who made ancient Pupput a significant locale. The Amphitheater of El Jem is also investigated.
