Archaeologists are excavating the Roman necropolis of Baelo Claudia in Spain. Some of the graves date back 2,000 years.

Founded in the late second century B.C., Baelo Claudia lies near today’s town of Tarifa at the southernmost tip of Spain, separated from Morocco by the Strait of Gibraltar. Since 2009, scientists at the University of Alicante have led excavations at the site, which is considered by some the best preserved city from the high imperial Roman period of the Iberian Peninsula.
