Description

Questo libro illustra i risultati degli scavi realizzati dal Comune di Roma sull’area del Foro di Traiano fra il 1998 e il 2007. In particolare il volume analizza i dati relativi alla storia del monumento nel medioevo e nell’età moderna. Nella parte iniziale del libro viene presentata una storia del sito, dall’antichità ai nostri giorni, sulla base degli studi e degli scavi sinora realizzati. Nella seconda e nella terza parte sono esposti i ritrovamenti effettuati durante le campagne di scavo e le conclusioni che è possibile trarre dal loro studio per la conoscenza della topografia medievale dell’area e delle modalità di acquisizione e di gestione del territorio in quel periodo storico. Completano il volume quattro Appendici relative ai dati d’archivio, ai materiali ceramici rinvenuti in una cisterna, a due scarichi di scarti di produzione provenienti da altrettante officine di vasai rinascimentali e all’elenco dei reperti rinvenuti nel corso degli scavi nelle unità stratigrafiche esaminate.

This book illustrates the results of the excavations carried out by the Municipality of Rome on the area of the Trajan's Forum between 1998 and 2007. In particular, the volume analyzes data relating to the history of the monument in the Middle Ages and in the modern age. In the initial part of the book, a history of the site is presented, from antiquity to the present day, based on the studies and excavations carried out so far. The second and third parts show the findings made during the excavation campaigns and the conclusions that can be drawn from their study for the knowledge of the medieval topography of the area and the methods of acquisition and management of the territory in that historical period. The volume is completed by four Appendices relating to archival data, ceramic materials found in a cistern, two discharges of production waste from as many Renaissance potters' workshops and the list of finds found during excavations in the stratigraphic units examined.

REVIEWS
‘This book transforms our understanding of the evolution of Rome between the 9th and 11th centuries … Anyone interested in the history of archaeology in the heart of Rome, and the history and archaeology of the making of medieval to modern Rome (including the fascist period) will want to delve into this well-researched book.’ Professor Richard Hodges, American University of Rome

‘The data are unique and of immense importance to the archaeology of Rome, especially of the medieval and Renaissance periods. This is the first time since the Crypta Balbi project that an entire monumental complex of imperial Rome has been documented archaeologically from the end of antiquity to the present, and as such marks a fundamental contribution to our understanding of the city of Rome, and of urbanism and the environment in general.’ Robert Coates-Stephens, British School at Rome

‘This work is a fundamental and definitive contribution on the topic, and of great importance, more generally, for the history of medieval Rome.’ Professor Riccardo Santangeli Valenzani, Università degli Studi Roma Tre
