This project, as part of a master's program research, proposes a study about the built environment of the sanctuary of Eleusis and its spatial transformation during the Roman Period (2nd Century AD), to be acomplished in the Scuola Archeologica Italiana di Atene (The Italian Archaeological School in Athens) in Athens, Greece. The objective of this study is to acknowledge this space through the revision of the data and the most recent literature, as well as realize in loco activities in the archaeological site of Eleusis, which we believe to be fundamental to bring a solid contribution to our master's project.Therefore, an investigation concerning the built interventions in the sanctuary of Eleusis during the Roman Period through topographical studies allied with the study of inscriptions related to the sacred space will allow a better understanding of the integration process of the Eleusinian myth in Roman Mediterranean. Also approached will be the society organized around the sanctuary. Moreover, the experience in this traditional archaeological school in Athens, the access to the most updated and revised bibliography and updated data will bring a whole enrichment to our research.
