Server Costs Fundraiser 2023
Running a website with millions of readers every month is expensive. Not only do we pay for our servers, but also for related services such as our content delivery network, Google Workspace, email, and much more. We would much rather spend this money on producing more free history content for the world. Thank you for your help!

The Campus Martius is the massive flood plain defined by the massive curve of the Tiber River that stretches from above Piazza del Popolo to beyond the Tiber Island, roughly over a square mile. This flood plain was a place of exercise and military training in the regal period, according to tradition, the property of the Tarquin rulers. Once expelled, the land became ager publicus (public land) and dedicated to Mars (Livy 2.5.2). In the 5th Century BCE, the most important construction was the Villa Publica with the component of the Saepta for voting. Nearby, there was the Altar of Mars, although its original location has never been identified.
