The Roman Ruins

THE ROMAN RUINS MAP

A peninsula with history.

Discover the Acala island, as it was known in the days of Ancient Rome. A few minutes from Troia’s central area, travel back in time to the ruins of the largest center of fish-salting industry known from the Roman Empire, occupied until the 6th century. Wander among ruins of factories, tombs and tubs for hot and cold baths. New vestiges are being discovered every year, which you can see in the archaeological exhibitions, guided visits and thematic events. When you take a break from the beach, golfing or the marina, get a sense of Troia’s past and the history that shaped this area over time.

More about the project

SWAD PROJECT

The Roman Ruins of Troia are an extremely rich site, where a diversity of artifacts illustrating the trade and economy of Roman times have been collected.
This project offers a practical experience with the materials of the recent excavations, mainly Roman pottery, but also fauna and metals.

Students will learn about important tasks such as inventory, drawing and photography, as well as some notions about conservation. Students will contribute to the discovery and interpretation of the largest fish salting center in the Roman Empire.
