In April this year an international team of archaeologists working in Pompeii announced that they had found definitive evidence that the Roman inhabitants of the city were recycling and reusing waste material, particularly in the construction of buildings.
It followed careful analysis of large mounds of material outside the city boundaries – long thought to be simply rubbish – which in fact turned out to be “staging grounds for cycles of use and reuse,” according to study lead Professor Allison Emmerson.
