Background: A series of archaeological finds has been made on the tiny italian island of Sant'Antioco, near Sardinia.
Archaeologists, digging in the ruins of a Punic temple, have found a number of interesting tombs.
One tomb which has been opened, seen on film, contained at least 15 people.
Finds are proving so valuable that the island's administrative council has decided to build a civic museum to house them.
