Darius Arya Digs
Gratuitously handsome and good-at-social-media archaeologist Darius Arya helps us discover the ancient ruins of Rome in this intimate series, all recorded in the field. In each episode, we find ourselves transported to the atmospheric streets of the Eternal City, surrounded by sputtering Vespas and accordion players and the cries of pedestrians. Arya proceeds to walk us to and around his chosen site - the Pantheon, or the Forum, or thebanks of the Tiber - and to narrate its history and its present. As he wanders and paints word-pictures, it's just as though we're tucked into one of his Indiana Jones khaki pockets. Each lightly edited episode runs about 30 minutes.
