Archaeology of Portus: Exploring the Lost Harbour of Ancient Rome

University of Southampton via FutureLearn

Overview

##

The harbour city of Portus was the conduit for everything that Rome required from its Mediterranean provinces: foods and grain, luxuries of all kinds, building materials, people and wild animals for the arena. Largely filmed on location at Portus, you will learn to interpret the archaeological discoveries and what they tell us about the history, landscape, buildings, and people of this unique place. You will also gain insight into the wide range of digital technologies employed to record, analyse and present the site and some of the best-preserved Roman port buildings in the Mediterranean.

We would like students who are fascinated by archaeology and history. The course will also appeal to students with an interest in technologies such as digital photography. No previous knowledge is required or assumed.

    Very interesting course. Would recommend for novices in archaeology. You will need to learn a few archaeology terms to help with the course. There are quizzes at the end of each segment.
