So, the archaeological mystery in Dominus begins with a medieval well, a collapsed wall, and unburied skeletons discovered at an ancient Roman villa site located just outside of Rome. But damn, real life is stranger (and better) than fiction. The on-going exploration of this late 4th century BCE Greek tomb is absolutely fabtastic. Great interactive maps, photos and excellent drawings though most likely not (like, um no) Alexander’s tomb. Bit of sensational ministry PR, me thinks. Happens. 

In book 2 of the Dominus series, Stefano and Charlie return to the mysterious underground corridor in the dead of night.
