Summary

Sailing ships, fishing boats and lighters sailed along the banks of the Tiber between the 2nd and 5th centuries, when Rome had one of the largest harbours to help supply it. In the late 1950s the remains of these ships were discovered during excavations near Fiumicino International Airport. Giulia Boetto, a naval archaeologist, in collaboration with other researchers and engineers, was able to reconstruct them using 3D modelling.
