Ancient Rome is still alive--a cool video about the Lod Mosaic

An amazing, completely intact, Roman mosaic floor was recently found in Israel. This video documents the renovation. I especially like the tiger. If you happen to be in the New York area, the entire floor is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art through April 3rd. I'm excited to see it. I'll be in New York at the end of this month, and I plan to visit the Met to do more research for my new novel, Agathon's Daughter. I love hanging out in the new Greek and Roman Galleries. I love hanging out at the Met, period. It's almost like time-traveling.
