Portus and its Hinterland

Details

Portus was the principal maritime port of Rome between the first and sixth centuries AD, and is one of the largest, richest and most accessible Roman ports in the Mediterranean. However, whilst it has been documented archaeologically since at least the Renaissance, its key role in the movement of traded goods between Rome and the Mediterranean consistently has been underplayed in favour of the fluvial port of Ostia. This volume, arising from a workshop held at the British School at Rome, seeks to begin to redress this imbalance, to share the results of the various projects currently focused on Portus and its Hinterland, and to foster greater public awareness of this remarkable site. xvi, 320p, 151 b/w illustrations and 16 colour plates
