Archaeologists believe that they have uncovered and identified a large shipyard near the city of Rome. Originally thought to be a simple warehouse, re-examination of the building suggests that it was used to maintain ships.
If it in fact it is a shipyard, it is a significant find that could provide new insight into Roman shipping and trade.
“Few Roman Imperial shipyards have been discovered and, if our identification is correct, this would be the largest of its kind in Italy or the Mediterranean.”
