The Market of Trajan is a large complex of ruins in the city of Rome.  It was built in 100-110 by Apollodorus of Damascus, Trajan's architect.  During the Middle Ages the complex was transformed by adding floor levels still visible today and building defensive elements such as the Torre delle Milizie, built in 1200.  Visitors enter into a shopping area where free wheat was once distributed to the people of Rome.  The upper levels of the market were used for offices while the lower part, in front of Trajan's Forum, had shops selling oil, wines, seafood, groceries, vegetables and fruit.  In the lower part there are also two large halls, probably used for auditions or concerts.  The market is roofed by a concrete vault raised on piers, both covering and allowing air and light into the central space.  The market itself is constructed primarily out of brick and concrete.
