Treasures galore in subway dig Rome's past being unearthed by one layer at a time ROME — A sixth-century copper factory, medieval kitchens still stocked with pots and pans, and remains of Renaissance palaces are among the finds unveiled Friday by archaeologists digging up Rome in preparation for a new subway line. Archaeologists have been probing the depths of the Eternal City at 38 digs, many of which are 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. "The medieval and Renaissance finds that were brought to light in Piazza Venezia are extremely important for their rarity," said archaeologist Mirella Serlorenzi, who is working on the site. Serlorenzi said that among the most significant discov- Whaling encounters get more dangerous Archaeologists work in an archaeological dig in Rome's central Piazza Venezia Square, with the Monument to the Unknown Soldier in the background, in this file photo. eries in a ninth-century kitchen were three pots that were used to heat sauce. Only two others had been found previously in Italy. The copper factory "factory" was used to work on copper alloys, and it consisted of small ovens, traces of which can be seen. Small copper ingots were found and are being analyzed. The archaeological investigations are needed only for stairwells and air ducts, as the 15 miles of stations and tunnels will be dug at a depth of 80 to 100 feet — below the level of any past human habitation, experts said. However, most of the digs still have to reach the earth strata that date back to Roman times, where plenty of surprises may be waiting. That may create problems between planners and conservationists, officials said. "It is impossible that there will not be situations of conflict. We know that in some cases the conflict will create a removal of ancient ruins," Rome's archaeological superintendent Angelo Bottini told The Associated Press. Under Italy's strict conservation laws, it will be up to Bottini's office for Rome to decide whether a find will be removed, destroyed or encased within the subway's structures. \ssufialfd Pnsa TOKYO — The Japanese coast guard said Friday that anti-whaling activists threw rotten butter and other objects at a Japanese whale- processing ship, the latest high seas clash over the country's'annual hunt. The coast guard said its officers aboard the vessel responded by tossing "warning balls." Australia's foreign minister described the devices as "flash bangs," or stun grenades. The leader of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling group said that he had been shot at during the confrontation with the whaling vessel, the Nisshin Maru, and was saved by his bulletproof vest. The group released a photo of him holding what appeared to be a spent slug. Japan denied shots had been fired. It was impossible to verify either side's account of the clash, which occurred some 1,800 miles south- southwest of Melbourne, Australia, in the Antarctic Ocean, according to the coast guard. The clash began when activists aboard the Sea Shepherd ship threw objects at the Nisshin Maru, according to the Japanese. The objects included more than 10 paper ASSUCIA IT.I) I'KI.SS In this photo released by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a member of the Japanese coast guard throws sound-emitting "warning balls" Friday at the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's anti-whaling vessel. bags of white powder, several bottles containing what was believed to be rotten butter and several bottles containing an unidentified white liquid, according to Hideki Moronuki, chief of the Japanese Fishing Agency's whaling section. The Nisshin Maru issued warnings by radio for those aboard the Sea Shepherd to stop.
