In 1935 Italian scientists and archaeologists were searching for the medieval tomb of the Goth leader Alaric. History records that Alaric was soon to invade North Africa to ensure steady supplies of food arriving in Rome. Just before he set off he became feverish and died. His Goth survivors buried his body in the Busento River. The men who dug his grave were slain so no one knew its location.
