Saturday Word of the Day: Hypogeum

*Hypogeum: an underground burial chamber

It was awe inspiring. A vast expansive area, hidden under their very feet.

Piles of precious items were piled against the walls. Ornate carvings graced red wood. Gilded gold vases stood on either side of a rich and lavish coffin.

The hypogeum was simply fascinating. Until the earthquake struck and buried it forever.
