A group of speleologists is completing the first ever mapping of the 11 aqueducts that supplied ancient Rome that still run for hundreds of kilometres underground and along stunning viaducts. Helped with modern technologies they map the network compiled at the beginning of the 20th century by British Roman archaeologist Timothy Ashby between 1906 and 1925.
