Wonderful web site, well worth taking the time out to browse through.

Mark Townsend's curator insight, January 17, 2014 7:48 PM

This article gives us interesting information about Ostia, Harbour City of Ancient Rome. This Archaologist gives us a tour of Ostia and basically creates a mental picture of how Ostia was created and successful ran as a legitimate city. He would let us in on evidence of how it was all made and maintain. Interesting stuff if you are able to grasp a picture.
