Cartagena’s Archaeological Artefacts
Cartegena is literally an archaeological site scattered with ancient Roman ruins with more and more relics being found every day. Archaeologists excavate away in what used to be a banqueting room as I explore what is to become part of an ancient Roman park in a few years time.
The Atrium Building was built at the end of the 1st century BC and was related to semi-public corporation. It is believed to have been used as a place in which ritual banquets were celebrated in honour of gods such as Isis or Serapis, both of Eastern origin, activities of worship taking place in an adjoining sanctuary.
