Ancient mosaic discovered in Rome's Coliseum

A 2,000-year-old mosaic wall has been discovered in perfect condition in a cellar near the Coliseum in Rome.

Archaeologists say they think the work, which shows the Greek god Apollo surrounded by his muses, may be just one of many hidden at the site.

David Willey reports from Rome.
