The Roman Forum – What you need to know
The Roman Forum was originally a lively centre for conducting business, a place for meeting friends and family, as well as the main market area. The Forum stretched from the Campidoglio to the Quirinal. The area was then developed from 200 BC onwards with the construction of government buildings and law courts. Caesar and Augustus established the definitive configuration of the Roman Forum. Excavation began around the nineteenth century to bring to light those parts of the Forum that had been buried. There are many monuments you can still admire in the Roman Forum, including: the Senate House, the Basilica Aemilia, the Temple of Saturn, the Temple of Vesta, the Temple of Caesar and the House of the Vestals, which all date before Christ, and the Arch of Titus, the Basilica of Maxentius and the Column of Phocas that date after Christ.
