On Saturday 18th June, the public will have the opportunity to view the Domvs Romana from a different perspective.
Although the Domvs is known as a high-class residence, excavations carried out in 1920 unearthed the remains of numerous small Roman houses built along the road which indicate humbler homes and other social classes. Morevover, in 1940, the Domvs Romana served as a temporary home for a family who moved in it from Tarxien due to the war.
The tour Domvs Romana: Houses Beyond the House – A Residence, A Home explores the Domvs Romana’s function as an accommodation used by different people through various circumstances in history. Attendees will also be treated to a sneak peek into the ongoing excavations at the back of this ancient site.
There will be a tour in Maltese at 10.00am and another one in English at 12.30pm. Tickets (adults – €20, children – €15, members – €15) are available at all Heritage Malta museums and sites, or online on shop.heritagemalta.org
