I sure hope someone is working on combining these two news stories:

1. A 2000-year-old jar of cream has been discovered in an archeological dig in London. The cream still shows prints from the fingers of a hypothetically beautiful Roman babe.

2. Canadian scientists have developed a new method for extracting DNA from fingerptints. Good work, Canada.

This probably won't get reported anywhere else, but I expect we're less a year away from the birth of the first Rome clone, as I'm going to call them. Soon we'll be able to clone some Visigoths too, and I'll name the eldest "Clonan the Barbarian".

Naturally we'll make them fight each other in our cloned Colosseum.
