The Waters of the City of Rome

Aquae Urbis Romae is a free humanities website that studies relationships between water infrastructure and urban development in Rome from 753BCE to 312CE (by 3/2007 it will extend to the year 800 with added GIS functions). The unique cartographic environment of the website allows scholars in a range of disciplines to create personally tailored research maps and to link to a broad range of original research and archival resources. I seek funding to extend the website to include maps, images, inventory entries, and original articles related to the High Medieval and Renaissance periods (to 1560), in order to expand our understanding of the continuities and discontinuities of Rome’s urban development as a function of water management.
