The Pompeii Forum Project is a collaborative research venture
that is archaeologicaly based, heavily dependent upon advanced
technology, and so conceived as to address broad issues in urban
history and urban design. Evidence gathered to date challenges
commonly held and widely published notions about the evolution of
the forum, especially during the final years of the city's life.
The goals are to provide the first systematic documentation of
the architecture and decoration of the forum, to interpret
evidence as it pertains to Pompeii's urban history, and to make
wider contributions to both the history of urbanism and
contemporary problems of urban design.
