RECENTLY DISCOVERED WAS AN ANCIENT SCROLL DETAILING ONE FORMER EMPRESS OF ROME'S SCHOLARLY PROGRESS.

FOUND IN A ROMAN PLAZA, THE SITE WAS DISCOVERED WHEN ITALIAN WORKERS WERE CLEARING AWAY DEBRIS FROM A RECENT CAVE IN. ARCHEOLOGISTS WERE QUICKLY BROUGHT IN ONCE ARTIFACTS WERE DISCOVERED.

WORLD RENOWNED ARCHEOLOGISTS DRS. COVINGTON AND PAPPAS WERE FIRST ON THE SCENE AND HAD THIS TO SAY AT PRESS TIME:

"It's an extraordinary find, almost perfectly preserved for the amount of time it's been buried underground," Dr. Pappas said.

"We're very excited about what it means in terms of Roman lifestyle and education."

When Dr. Covington was asked on her feelings, she replied with, "It's an old piece of paper, we'll see if it's worth all the fuss or not."

AFTER CAREFUL EXAMINATION, THE DRS. COVINGTON AND PAPPAS HAD THIS TO SAY REGARDING THE NEWLY DISCOVERED ANCIENT SCROLL:

"It's immensely intriguing," said Dr. Pappas, "this Livia was apparently very good at math and science but it seems her scribing was terrrible, she received a failing grade."

When pressed, Dr. Covington had this to say: "She was a trouble maker alright. Says here, her school master thought she was bright but had a violent nature and was prone to physical violence. He didn't seem to think she was a good person at all."

Dr. Pappas went on to add, "We've carbon dated the scroll and from what we can gather looking at historical texts, it seems this report card was sent home around the time Livia was 16 or 17 years of age. It's very exciting."

THE DRS. COULD NOT SPECULATE ON WHEN THE SCROLL WOULD BE RELEASED FOR PUBLIC VIEWING.

MORE DETAILS TO COME...
