Medieval Kitchens of The Eternal City

I came across this while looking through some AP photos on Yahoo:
Rome's archaeological superintendent Angelo Bottini is interviewed by The Associated Press at a presentation of archaeological finds from digs for a new subway line in central Rome, on Friday, March 7, 2008. A sixth-century copper factory, medieval kitchens still stocked with pots and pans and remains of Renaissance palaces are among the latest finds unveiled Friday by archaeologists digging up downtown Rome in preparation for a new subway line. Archaeologists have been probing the depths of the Eternal City at 38 digs often set up near famous monuments or on key thoroughfares. Over the last nine months, remains including Roman taverns and 16th-century palace foundations have turned up at the central Piazza Venezia and near the ancient Forum where works are paving the way for one of the 30 stations of Rome's third subway line.
