New Portus volume 'The Isola Sacra Survey: Ostia, Portus and the port system of Imperial Rome' now available

The BSR is delighted to share news of the publication of the latest research on Portus ‘The Isola Sacra Survey: Ostia, Portus and the port system of Imperial Rome’ edited by Simon Keay, Martin Millett, Kristian Strutt and Paola Germoni’. The complete volume, published by the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research can be downloaded at: https://www.repository.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/308076 

The new survey (a part of the Portus Project) was a collaboration between the University of Southampton, University of Cambridge, Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica and the British School at Rome. The extensive geophysical survey, which investigated much of Isola Sacra, is framed by an analysis of the geomorphology of the delta, and integrated with information from past excavations. It is complemented by a programme of geoarchaeological coring and a short account of the ships excavated on the Isola Sacra in 2011.
