Overview of this part of the site

You have studied the material from this part of the site at lots of earlier stages in this course. Here below we have provided an additional video of Simon captured on-site during the 2014 Portus Field School. This gives a final overview of the main excavation area as it was during the 2014 season.

The extra video starts by looking at the eastern edge of Building 3, moves around to the west to look at aspects of the Imperial Palace, and continues round to look at part of Building 5 to the south and east.
