Two thousand year-old archaeological site discovered in Rome

An archaeological site dating back two thousand years has been discovered on Via Portuense in Rome.

The site, which includes thermal baths, a post station and a place of worship, were recently unveiled by Laura Cianfriglia, who has been leading excavations at the site.

The Special Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Rome is now conducting preliminary archaeological investigations and it is anticipated that many important artefacts will be unearthed since this area of Rome once formed part of an important transport link between the city centre and the Portus Docks (now Fiumicino).
