An entire Roman city has been mapped without being excavated at a site in Italy.

Key points:
The project marked the first time a complete ancient city was mapped using GPR
Falerii Novi, less than half the size of ancient Pompeii, had previously been partially excavated but most remained buried
It boasted an unexpectedly elaborate public bath complex and market building
Researchers used breakthrough ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to detect previously unrevealed details of buildings still deep underground, including a temple and a unique public monument.

The technology was used at Falerii Novi, a walled city spanning 30.5 hectares about 50 kilometres north of Rome, researchers said.

Falerii Novi was founded in 241 BC during the time of the Roman Republic and was inhabited until around AD 700 in the early Middle Ages.

The project marked the first time a complete ancient city was mapped using GPR, which lets researchers explore large-scale archaeological sites without excavation, which can be costly and time-consuming.

The technology can see beneath the surface using a radar antenna that sends a pulsed radio signal into the ground and listens for the echoes bouncing off objects.

The GPR equipment was pulled over the surface using an all-terrain vehicle.

"This took one person about three to four months in the field," said Martin Millett, a University of Cambridge classical archaeology professor who helped lead the study published in the journal Antiquity.

"This really does change how we can study and understand Roman towns the way of the future for archaeology."

Falerii Novi, less than half the size of ancient Pompeii, had previously been partially excavated but most remained buried.

With a population of perhaps 3,000 people, it boasted an unexpectedly elaborate public bath complex and market building, at least 60 large houses and a rectangular temple with columns near the city's south gate.

Near the north gate was a public monument unlike any other known, with a colonnaded portico on three sides and a large open square measuring 40 by 90 metres.

Falerii Novi had a network of water pipes running beneath the city blocks and not just along streets, indicating coordinated city planning.
