Professor Marco Conti was born in Rome in the period between the Rome Summer Olympics and the Second Vatican Council (you can go and work that date out now!).

Born in San Jose, California, Professor Elizabeth Wueste is an Assistant Professor and Program Director of Archaeology and Classics.

Traveling around the world to some of the most iconic sites from history, UNEARTHED combines scientific investigations and expert insight with stunning CGI animation to unearth the hidden secrets behind these famed monuments and reveal how and why they were created.
