"Secret" Source of Roman Aqueduct Discovered

The source of one of Rome's greatest aqueducts has been found after some three years of excavation. The source is still intact, though it has lain hidden for some 2000 years. It is believed to have taken workers some five or more years to build.

The caveat is that the aqueduct and its source are threatened by overgrowth of the surrounding fig trees. Archaeologists hope to save it, but are trying desperately to discover, and record, as much information as they can before this ancient treasure is lost forever.
