Lost library, villa emerges after 2,000 years

http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/science/03/03/italy.villa.reut/index.html

The long-buried Villa of the Papyri, one of Italy's richest Roman villas famed for its library of ancient scrolls, opened to the public this weekend almost 2,000 years after it was submerged in volcanic mud.


This is the villa the old Getty Museum in Los Angeles was modeled after.
