REPORTER: These are just a few of some 8,000 Roman artifacts found in the heart of London - a hair comb and a tiny statue that sat in the ground for nearly 2,000 years. A dig has revealed a site so well preserved, that experts have nicknamed the city "The Pompeii of the North", after the ill-fated Roman city buried in volcanic ash in 79 AD. Archeologist Angela Wardle says that the project has been a great success so far.
ANGELA WARDLE: "The excavation is scheduled to end this month but we've had amazing cooperation from developers who are very interested in the objects themselves and interested in the whole site, and I think things have been going very smoothly."
REPORTER: The excavation has also reportedly uncovered wooden structures dating back to around 40 AD, and after these finds some say the project London's most important archaeological site ever.
