Roman mausoleum found underneath pile of garbage

A 2,000-year-old Roman-era mausoleum has been uncovered from under tons of illegally-dumped rubbish in Italy.

The mausoleum, which dates back to the second century AD, was found by police hidden beneath 58 tonnes of garbage in the coastal town Pozzuoli while they were impounding the site they say was used to illegally dispose of waste.

Police used earth-moving equipment to dig through the garbage revealing the entrance to the mausoleum which was used to hide refuse.
