Roman Forum: The Roman Forum was scanned in two Half day sessions, the first being a combination of 10 Full resolution Scans above ground from various locations outside of the Forum, due to capture being restricted to outside the Forum. The second being a combination of 14 scans moving along the sewer system below the forum. Due to the scale of the site and without viable access we used natural references to tie together the scans.
Rome’s Invisible City. BBC’s ONE’s 60 minute special Rome’s Invisible City follows ScanLAB Projects and presenters Alexander Armstrong and Dr Michael Scott as they explore the hidden underground secrets of Ancient Rome. The show explores Roman infrastructure and ingenuity, all below ground level. We journeyed via the icy, crystal clear waters of subterranean aqueducts that feed the Trevi fountain and two thousand year old sewers which still function beneath the Roman Forum today, to decadent, labyrinthine catacombs. Our laser scans map these hidden treasures, revealing for the first time the complex network of tunnels, chambers and passageways without which Rome could not have survived as a city of a million people.
