I have these little red guides of Rome which have a photo of the
archaeological site view and a cellophane sheet overlay showing you an
artist's reconstruction of what it would have looked like. Not sure if you
can still buy them but they are certainly fun
I would lend them to you but have just moved all my books into store and
not sure I would be able to find them!
- and do go to Ostia Antica when there, and see that great mound of
amphora sherds - can't remember where it is.
