This report presents the Caesar’s Forum Project. It furthermore summarizes the results obtained this far while situating the current investigations within the broader research history pertaining to the area best known as that of Caesar’s Forum. Hitherto the 16th–20th century Alessandrino Quarter that until now only received limited scholarly attention has been excavated within the framework of the project. Moreover, the pottery from the 1998–2000 excavations conducted by the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali has been processed in preparation for the ongoing excavations, which are expected to reveal material similar to that from previous excavations, spanning a cultural horizon of more than 3000 years.
