Description

Located on the Via dei Fori Imperiali nowadays, Trajan’s Market is a part of Trajan’s Forum and situated on the northeast side of Basilica Ulpia. It now holds the Imperial Forums Museum. The complex of buildings includes market, small shop fronts and residential block, and is one of the typical and finest examples of Imperial Roman architectures which used brick-faced concrete (Roman concrete) to build arches, arcade, and barrel vault. Trajan’s Market also offers an image of daily life in ancient Rome, especially on shopping and commerce.
