Ostia - Rome's Gate to the Mediterranean

Since 1996 as a cooperation with the American Academy in Rome and the Soprintendenza per Beni Archeologici di Ostia, investigations in the yet unexcavated parts of the former port town of Rome have been conducted. By this, larger parts of the city plan could be complemented, and important developments of the port metropolis observed. Currently, the end publication is in preparation and the final analysis of the finds is ongoing.
