An ancient cemetery, located underneath Vatican City and containing the graves of some of the earliest Roman Christians, will soon be open to the public for the first time. It’s well preserved and presents a fascinating view of the lives and traditions of middle and lower class Romans between around 80 BC and 320 AD. Photo courtesy of Vatican Museum
