Tangimus Umbronem; non est ignobile flumen quod tuto trepidas excipit ore rates: tam facilis pronis semper patet alveus undis, in pontum quotiens saeva procella ruit

Academic details

The Roman Port of Rusellae, Tuscany

Located in the midst of unspoilt Tuscan countryside, near the modern city of Grosseto, the excavations are shaping a new understanding of Roman international exchange networks.

Current excavations focus on the cabotage river port linked to the EtruscanRoman city of Rusellae. These have revealed an extensive workshop complex manufacturing bone, metal and glass objects on a scale unmatched in the area.

The exceptionally rich and well-preserved site was a hub for trade and local luxury goods production throughout the Roman Imperial period.

The Field School projects are aimed at students, early career scholars and those passionate about archaeology.
No prior experience is required. They are offered as for-credit courses and as certificate of participation.
