Market place in ancient Rome?

A Roman market place is most commonly called a "Forum".


What is the marketplace in Rome?

Forum is the name for an ancient Roman market. In some of the smaller towns the forum was also a civic center. The main forum in the city of Rome itself, the Forum Romanum, evolved exclusively into a civic center.


For what activities was the forum used?

A forum was a market place. There were many fora in ancient Rome, some being specialized in the items they sold, others being general shopping malls. The main forum, the Forum Romanum, although originally a general market place, evolved into the city's civic center. However there were still "high end" shops either in it or in the streets adjacent to it. It was used for public announcements, politicians' speeches, and the posting of the senate's activities. Many business deals were carried out there also. It was the "downtown" of ancient Rome.
