Ostia – the Harbour of Rome

Birgitta Hoffmann

A landlocked city of a million inhabitants needs good harbours to keep itself supplied, from the earliest times Rome was very keen at controlling the mouth of the Tiber and the resources it offered, creating its first colony at the mouth of the river – Ostia (literally the mouth of the river).
The resulting town is dominated by the trade that passed through it and the people from everywhere that decided to stay. This dayschool is going to look at the excavations at Ostia itself and its finds.
