BIRTH OF ROME QUESTIONED BY NEW FIND

Archaeologists excavating the Roman Forum have unearthed a 3,000-year-old tomb that pre-dates the birth of ancient Rome by several hundred years, Associated Press reports today. "I am convinced that the excavations will bring more tombs to light," archaeology commissioner Eugenio La Rocca said.

Experts were quoted as saying the tomb appeared to date to about 1,000 B.C., meaning the people who constructed the necropolis pre-dated the ancient Romans by hundreds of years, writes Associated Press.

Legend has it that Rome was founded in 753 B.C. by Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of the god of war, Mars. The ancient civilization originated when northern tribes migrated to the Italian peninsula to settle around the River Tiber.
