Rome Transformed (ROMETRANS) is an advanced ERC-funded research project (2019-2024) which aims to advance our understanding of Rome and its place in cultural change across the Mediterranean World by mapping political, military, and religious changes to the eastern Caelian from the first to eighth centuries CE.

The project is conducted by Newcastle University, the Università degli Studi di Firenze, the British School at Rome and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche.

The project has three objectives: first, to determine the appearance of the buildings and spaces that articulated and drove these changes, producing academically robust visualisations. Second, it brings these elements together to model the key transformations that saw the Eastern Caelian reshaped to meet the needs of shifting political, military, and religious ideas. Third, it provides a longer-term interdisciplinary perspective on the changing shape of this pivotal area than any previously attempted. The team at the BSR provides expertise in the application of geophysical prospection in a modern urban environment.
