Underwater Pompeii 1x56

Baiae: an ancient Roman city lost to the same volcanoes that entombed Pompeii. But unlike Pompeii, Baiae sits under water, in the Bay of Naples. Nearly 2,000 years ago, the city was an escape for Rome’s rich and powerful elite, a place where they were free of the social restrictions of Roman society. But then the city sank into the ocean, to be forgotten in the annals of history. Now, a team of archaeologists is mapping the underwater ruins and piecing together what life was like in this playground for the rich. What made Baiae such a special place? And what happened to it?

Underwater Pompeii is part of the Secrets of the Dead series.
