Theme 4 - Sacrifice and Ritual Deposits

This project focuses on examining sacrifices, feasts and ritual deposits on the forum of Ostia and Foro della Statua Eroica. The thesis will contain a contextual examination of the ceramic material found on the fora of the city, focusing on material found in the campaigns between 2008 and 2020. This analysis of the pottery will seek to examine the religious landscape of Ostia and examine the fora as a communal religious space.
