        Under the city of Rome lies a vast system of catacombs. The ancient Romans built these catacombs because they simply didn't like death—they feared it and didn't want to think about it. They wanted to push death out onto the margins, even out of sight, so they buried their dead. The catacombs of St. Callixtus are among the greatest and most important of Rome. They originated about the middle of the second century and are part of a cemeterial complex which occupies an area of 90 acres, with a network of galleries about 12 miles long, in four levels, more than twenty meters deep.
