A Roman ship was been uncovered just outside of Rome, between Ostia and Fiumicino International Airport, while repair work was being conducted on a local bridge. Ostia ("Ostia Antica") was once one of the richest cities in Rome as it lay near the mouth of the Tiber River. The ship discovered is the largest ever excavated near the city and could provide new information on ancient Roman seafaring. Please read more about this fascinating discovery by clicking here.
