Italy: Archaeologists discover ancient Roman processional chariot near Pompeii


Mandatory credits: City of Pompeii

The archaeological park of Pompeii presented a large ancient-Roman four-wheeled processional chariot discovered on the famous Italian cultural site, as seen from the park's footage on Saturday.

The carriage made of iron, bronze and tin was found in a well-preserved state a few metres north of the walls of ancient Pompeii.

"Pompeii continues to surprise people with discoveries and it will remain this way for some years still as there are 20 hectares that still need to be excavated. Most of all, it demonstrates that this place can still be enhanced and can attract tourists from all over the world," stated Italian Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini.

The ancient city of Pompeii was engulfed by a massive volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The area is today a vast archaeological site classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


SOT, Dario Franceschini, Italian Minister of Culture (Italian): "Pompeii continues to surprise people with discoveries and it will remain this way for some years still as there are 20 hectares that still need to be excavated. Most of all, it demonstrates that this place can still be enhanced and can attract tourists from all over the world. While, at the same time, research and studies can take place. And, a young director like [Archaeologist Gabriel] Zuchtriegel can make the most out of this opportunity."

A 2003 BBC Docu-drama. The highest ever rated history documentary on the BBC at the time of its release.

On 24 August AD 79, the sleeping giant Mount Vesuvius erupted with horrifying force, destroying the prosperous Roman cities Pompeii and Herculaneum. Their inhabitants were subjected to 24 hours of untold horror. Four million tonnes of pumice, rock and ash rained on the towns, suffocating the life out of the cities, and burying those who had been unable to flee.

Pompeii - The Last Day recreates that momentous day, and shows first hand the horror of Pompeii's last hours. Factual characters based on historical and forensic evidence unearthed in Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as extracts from Gauis Plinius Monor's account of the disaster, help bring to life one of the most notorious disasters in history.

Using stunning visual effects, the film recreates each stage of the 24 hour eruption and explores the devastating impact on the main characters; Julius Polybius, wealthy baker and aspiring politician; Stephanus, a cloth worker and social climber and his wife Fortunata Celadus the celebrity gladiator; Pliny the elder, in charge of the rescue mission; and, finally, Pliny the younger, who documents the horrors of the tragedy.

Correction: The narrator says that "there is no word for Vulcano in Latin because they have not seen anything like this before." He is wrong about the word, because Vulcan is the god of fire, including the fire of volcanoes, deserts, metalworking, and the forge in ancient Roman religion and myth. The Vulcanalia was the annual festival held August 23 in his honor. Sure they didn't know about the Volcano as rupture, thought they did have earthquakes, but the word volcano is derived from the name of Vulcano, whose name in turn comes from Vulcan, the god of fire in Roman mythology.

Conceived by the French director Adrian Maben as "an anti-Woodstock film," Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii was shot in October 1971 in a vacant, 2,000-year-old amphitheater--a venue chosen to accentuate the grandeur and spaciousness of the band's Meddle-era music.
Maben's cut goes to great lengths to lend the film a more contemporary feel, but it's the earlier version that makes this disc such a gem, being more focused on the music and more wholistic in vision. The anamorphic, 16:9 director's cut interweaves the Pompeii performances with fascinating but distracting interviews and music snippets filmed later (mostly during the recording of Dark Side of the Moon). The movie was originally prepared in a 4:3 aspect ratio, however, and the widescreen version crops perfectly framed images like the nine-square mosaic of drummer Nick Mason in "One of These Days." The original offers plenty of closeups of fingers on frets and keys, with shots that are often luxuriously long in duration. And the picture quality from Pompeii is revelatory: outstandingly sharp and clear, rich in subtle grades of light and color.

Track List:
01 - Echoes, Part 1
02 - Careful with That Axe, Eugene
03 - A Saucerful of Secrets
04 - Us and Them (studio footage)
