Rome's Mediterranean Ports Project

The BSR is proud to be a collaborative partner in the new 5 year research project Rome’s Mediterranean Ports Project (RoMP).

This project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) grant and led by the University of Southampton

Building on the success of the Portus Project, the RoMP project will address specific questions relating to the capacities of and inter-connections between a range of 30 selected ports in ways that will allow us to better understand their role in promoting the cohesion and integrity of the Roman Mediterranean during the imperial era.

More details about this exciting new initative can be found at the Portus Limen website
