HISTORICAL NOTES
The Regia archive details the groundbreaking excavations carried out in the Forum Romanum in 1964–1975 by Frank E. Brown. Due to ill health, Brown never completed the final publication, but left behind a detailed archive, including notebooks, plans, sections, finds cards, and photos. The contents of the Regia collection were digitized in 2014–2015.

SCOPE AND CONTENT
The paper archive of the excavation at Regia includes 3,000 catalog cards, over 2,500 maps, drawings, plans, close to 4,000 photographs, and 38 notebooks, well as 1,296 letters and 9,504 typewritten documents.  The materials consist of 80.6 linear ft. housed in the Archaeological Archive in the American Academy in Rome, 5B.


ARRANGEMENT AND PROCESSING INFORMATION
The Regia collection is sub-divided into four sub-collections: Catalogue, Excavation Photographs, Negatives, and Plans and Sections. The 4,068 single documents in the collection have been digitized and are individually described. The paper archive is housed in the AAR Archaeology Archive and is consultable by appointment
