Emiliano Brunori: Garbatella (Roma, 2014)
Let the excavating begin! A French-Italian research team has uncovered the first ancient harbor of Rome, located near the city of Ostia. While HBO and the BBC have dished up saucy and incestuous television series about the Romans, these researchers have unearthed the first Roman harbor that is speculated to have served as an outlet to the sea, a hub to receive supplies of wheat and salt, and finally a key spot to ward off enemy attacks on the Tiber river. Attempts to uncover the ancient port began to take off during the Renaissance, yet the excavations have yielded unsuccessful results. Finally, this French team has turned up successful.
The ancient port was said to have been built by Ancus Marcius, the 4th king of Rome, and is a landmark discovery for the research team. The site was discovered using a new geological corer that allows archeologists to take soil samples from various strata of the earth. The harbor is said to be the largest port ever built by the Romans. The task for the researchers now is to figure out the origins of the wheat that once fed the million inhabitants that once resided in Ancient Rome.
