Link Love: Archaeologists Uncover the Athenaeum of Hadrian

First-time visitors to Rome are often surprised to see archaeological excavations going on right in the heart of the city.

Check out eternallycool.net's report on the excavations in the middle of Piazza Venezia -- one of Rome's busiest intersections!
