Portus Project

Archaeology: The Portus Project

A University of Southampton study of Portus, the maritime port of Imperial Rome, led by Professor Simon Keay, has had a significant influence on how the State authorities in Rome manage archaeological sites. Its findings show that commercial activity at the port was far greater than previously understood, enabling academics to reappraise the site’s significance and increase public awareness of it around the world. A three-phase programme of archaeological research, led by the University of Southampton, is the first sustained study of Portus, the port of Imperial Rome.
