Rescued hero

The original site of the Lupercal was soon swallowed up by a rapidly expanding and transforming city, even if the myth lived on.

According to myth, Romulus and Remus were nursed by a she-wolf

The cavern, some 26ft (8m) high, has been found in the very heart of the city, on the Palatine Hill.

"People have been looking for it for a long time because ancient Rome, like modern Rome, was a big city and was undergoing redevelopment all the time," said Professor Peter Wiseman of Exeter University.

"A huge amount of rebuilding took place, especially around the Palatine, which was right in the centre. Even Dionysius, writing in 1BC, says it is difficult to see in the modern city where the cave of the Lupercal is."
