In and beyond the space of the Roman Forum: Julia Davis, Ann-Marie James, Pollyxenia Joannou and Lisa Jones
Tracce, 2017. In and Beyond the Spaces of the Roman Forum - a Macquarie University Art Gallery exhibition in collaboration with the Department of Ancient History. Tracce has as its starting point a Plan of Ancient Rome, Plan von Alten Rom circa 1850. The plan, which was produced before the advent of modern archaeological research, attempts to capture the layout of ancient Rome in the 4th century. The plan clearly shows the Aurelian walls, the topography of the seven hills and the Servian walls. It also shows some of the surviving buildings of the period, such as the Baths of Caracalla, the Colloseum and the Baths of Diocletian.
