Buildings

The Portus Project and the Portus in the Roman Mediterranean project have focused on several built structures which lie at the centre of the port on an isthmus of land positioned between the Claudian and Trajanic basins, and which have been identified as belonging to the Palazzo Imperiale (Buildings 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8), an imperial shepshed (Building 5) and an adjacent complex (Building 7).  These buildings were the focus of key administrative activities associated with the port.
