Anden udgravningsfase på Cæsars Forum i Rom

I marts måned blev anden fase af de dansk-italienske udgravninger af Cæsars Forum i Rom indledt. Selvom udgravningen stadig er på et tidligt stadie, er der allerede gjort væsentlige fund, som kaster nyt lys over Alessandrino-kvarterets historie i 1900-tallet.
