Great news although I´m not so optimistic about what can still be found. If I remember correctly that Villa was well gone through by the bestial "archeological" methods of the 1700´. The actual saved pieces come from back then, not some recent dig. That the previous diggers have left something behind and that this will still produce some redable manuscripts is pretty weak. Instead they should found continued research in nearby Pompeii where half of the town still lies unexcavated. <p></p><i></i>
