It's the common movie cliche - archaeologists go poking around sites not meant for the world of man and inevitably unearth some sort of horror upon themselves. Team members die. Maybe there's a risque sex scene somewhere down the line; depends on how bad the studio wants that R rating. But that's only pretend, right? Just for the moving pictures and the occasional novel or video game adaptation, right? Well... Discovery News Alright, so there wasn't a creepy monster or space alien, but "lethal vapors" is close enough in my book. And if we count sparrows as part of the team, it meets all the requirements. Sadly, I can't find any confirmation that about the whole risque sex scene business. Consider that a bust. Of course, this isn't a literal, physical gate to the underworld - as far as we know, no such thing exists (Hades gonna hate). Still, it's absolutely a great cultural find, and hopefully it'll give us a better understanding of Ancient Greek society. Plus, "Archaeologists Discover 'Gate to Hell'" makes for a great headline. Still no word on that Stairway to Heaven, though. I'll get back to you on that one.
