New in Planet Maia: Building Tabernae and Archaeology of Portus (MOOC)
I have just added the following resources to the Maia Atlantis feed aggregator:
title = Building Tabernae

description = About two years ago, I received a quarter million euro grant from the Dutch government for a four year project on urban commercial investment in Roman Italy, and a project blog was already in the proposal. The project – Building Tabernae – started April, 2013, and is now about to enter a new phase, in which some results will start emerging, and new data will be gathered. The blog, I hope, is a way to force the scholar in charge of this project – me – to record and communicate the project’s successes and failures, and everything else that one encounters when investigating commercial investment in Roman Italy, and to be available for discussion with specialists and non-specialists alike.
