What can we learn from studying the past?

In this QuickTime movie, the Class learns about the past they are seeing under the Cathedral in Geneva.

Active exploration continues at the archaeological site under the Cathedral, and it is far from finished. The sections of the site open to the public allow us to see for ourselves the problems presented when interpreting the remains of 2000 years of construction in one spot. Walls and layers can be identified, and related to information from archaeological sites and church buildings in other parts of Europe
