Using the latest 3D scanning technology, Alexander Armstrong and Dr Michael Scott uncover 2500 years of hidden history in the city of Naples. They explore how the ever-present volcano of Mount Vesuvius both nurtured the region and exacted a terrible price from those who benefited from living close by. They delve into a labyrinth of underground spaces that helped build and sustain the city. They also experience how this hotbed of volcanic activity is associated with the underworld from its earliest Greek and Roman origins; revealing a place where life and death and beauty and danger are never far apart.
