    At a time when Christians, in particular, were persecuted, the Catacombs became a relatively safe place to bury the dead."

    You can travel "through" walls, down corridors and into chambers, giving the first real sense of its beauty, scale and detail.

    Paintings on walls, which have not been seen in nearly 2,000 years, are now visible - their colours vivid and clear.

    "It is not a virtual image, it is not animation - what you are seeing is real data," says Mr Zimmerman." Fascinating, but it doesn't kill the solitude.
