Real archaeology: nothing like Indiana Jones

BBC News – Herculaneum sewer sheds light on secrets of Roman life.

From the article:

“A team of experts has been sifting through hundreds of sacks of human excrement.

They found a variety of details about their diet and their illnesses.”

Never have I been so glad I did not become an archaeologist.  It looks like it’s not all exploring pyramids and fighting Nazis after all.
