Duke University and the Superintendence of Rome signed a collaboration agreement for the digital recording, study, interpretation and communication of the Forum of Trajan.  This collaboration opens new research and education perspectives to Duke because of the availability of over 40,000 archaeological finds and objects to study and re-contextualize; and to the Roman institutions because of the innovative digital and interdisciplinary work Duke can provide. The first step of this collaboration will be the digital re-contextualization of the architectural decorations stored in the local museum. This site was created for the celebration of the 1900th anniversary of the Trajan’s death.
