Roma Aeterna Limited Edition
Early monuments remains located in the Forum include the carcer 'prison', and altar to Vulcan, the Lapis Niger, Temple of Vesta, and the Regia.
When the Roman Empire fell, the Forum became forgotten, buried and was used a cattle pasture during the Middle Age. Much of the forum has been destroyed. Columns and stone blocks are all that remain of some temples. Like many ancient Roman building, stone blocks have been removed from the Forum and used to build nearby churches and palaces.
The city was forgetten, buried quietly beneath layer upon layer of ash and dirt, until its accidental discovery in 1748.
