Denmark funds excavations at Caesar's Forum

Excavation of Forum of Julius Caesar will focus under Via dei Fori Imperiali.

The Carlsberg Foundation of Denmark is donating €1.5 million to fund a major three-year archaeological excavation project at the Forum of Julius Caesar in Rome.

The dig will focus on the north-eastern section currently buried underneath Via dei Fori Imperiali and is expected to provide a significant contribution to the knowledge of the archaeological history of the Imperial Fora. 

The excavation is a collaboration between the capital and the Danish Institute in Rome and is scheduled to begin this autumn.
