Ostia Antica

Ostia Antica is less than a one hour train ride from Rome. It was a port city, with around 50,000 residents, for the Roman Empire, until the river upon which it was located changed course. At that point the city was abandoned and eventually burried. In recent times it has been excavated.
 Romans burried their dead or placed the ashes of the dead outside the city limits.
