Geber spent evenings and weekends scrutinizing and meaĥ suring the skeletons, trying to wring every last bit of data from the bones before they were reburied to create a narrative of what happened in the Kilkenny workhouse during these years.

After Rome succumbed to invaders in the sixth century, the Oppian Hill was more or less abandoned, leaving the Domus Aurea undisturbed in comparison with much of the ancient city, and preserving what remained underneath for nearly 1,500 years.

It was not until the late fifteenth century, when a boy fell through an opening in the side of the hill, that the palace’s decoration became well known. Some of the greatest Italian painters, among them Pinturicchio, Ghirlandaio, and Raphael, were lowered by ropes into openings that were originally believed to be caves.
