London Unearthed as "Pompeii of the North"
These are just a few of some 8,000 Roman artifacts found in the heart of London - a hair comb and a tiny statue that sat in the ground for nearly 2,000 years.

This is marvellous news.
Ive been to Pompeii lots of times and was so fascinated I wrote a book about it! The buildings, mosaics, frescos and small finds are so special. I would recommend everyone to also visit the Archaeological Museum in Naples.
If you can't please read my book! It is an iBook for the iPad and can be purchased for £1.99 (introductory price) through the iBooks app and the interactive Bookstore. Use the search box at the top right and type in Rotheram to find it quickly. You will not be disappointed and with 218 pages and over 500 photos you will be absorbed for hours. It also covers Roman life, Herculaneum and the marvellous villa at Oplontis. Look at the free sample book...
