Ostia II – Portus, Isola Sacra and the via Salaria

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).
Focusing on Portus (the man-made harbour at the other branch of the Tiber), this dayschool will explore the economy and infrastructure in the Tiber estuary and its transport links with Rome.
