CCR Walks: Into the Ancient Urban Jungle - December 4, 2016

Layer upon layer upon layer: join us as we discover the houses under San Paolo alla Regola. Delving under Campus Martius in the early 1900s, archaeologists discovered the remains of an insula (ancient Roman tenement building) under the renaissance Palazzo Specchi, itself composed of medieval structures. The building is now home to a young people’s library, with private homes above that. Thanks to a special permit, we will chart the interaction of ancient and modern uses of space in central Rome, from ancient to modern times, at this very special location.
