There's a new tourist attraction in Rome, where geeky travelers can stop and ask, "Et tu, Brute?"
Archeologists have discovered what they believe is the exact spot where Roman dictator Julius Caesar was stabbed over 2,000 years ago by a conspiring group of senators. The team from the Spanish National Research Council dug up a concrete structure, which they believe Caesar's son Augustus erected in his father's honor and also to condemn the notorious attack, famously dramatized by Shakespeare.
Though the finding has not been fully confirmed, thousands of people have already flocked to the site. Can a History Channel cheesy re-enactment show be far behind?
