Immersion 2012: Ancient Rome  
 
Dr. Hartnett presents the famed "Alexander Mosaic," which was found in the House of the Faun in Pompeii and is now displayed in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. Made of several million tesserae (tiny stone pieces), it is a masterpiece of Roman artistry and illustrates some Romans' fascination with the Greek world.
