ItalianNotebook friend Darius Arya, Ph.D, (director at the American Institute for Roman Culture) talks to us about the Gladiator Tomb and how important an opportunity it is for everyone that the site be excavated instead of being buried (common practice in the archaeology world when funds are short).
Darius needs another 700-800 signatures on the Gladiator Tomb petition, and I figured that all of us at ItalianNotebook are up to the task!
If you haven’t yet, please sign at the bottom of the Gladiator Tomb petition, thanks!
(Once you click the “Sign Now” button, you will be taken to a donation page for the petition service… neither Darius nor the Archaeological Superintendency nor the American Institute for Roman Culture receive any of the funds collected here. You can simply close the page at this point. Again, any donations collected here DO NOT go towards the Gladiator Tomb conservation efforts. Your signature on the petition will be recorded even without a donation.)
Here’s a homespun video where I make fun of Darius and his obsession with diggin’ up old broken buildings…
Once again, if you feel we would all benefit from this discovery, please sign at the bottom of the Gladiator Tomb petition, thanks!
