This one is not a murder, but it has plenty of mystery… We look at the curious case of a young girl from the later Roman Empire, found in an undisturbed burial in Grottarossa near Rome, mummified in the Egyptian style and with a funerary equipment consisting of objects from all over the world – including Baltic amber, Chinese silk, and sapphires from Sri Lanka! We will reconstruct the lifestyle and story of the girl and her family, the manner of her death and mummification, and reflect on what her burial tells us on how cosmopolitan Roman culture truly was, and on the relationship between Rome and the rest of the ancient world.
