The Forum lies between the two hills Capitolinus and Palatinus. This was a swamp and had to be drained. For this reason the great sewer Cloaca maxima was constructed.

Romulus' hut at the Palatinus was kept there, even in the times of Augustus, though Romulus and his hut were mythical.
The same is true for the sister's beam. Both object must have been placed in later times.
The Romans went through a lot of trouble just to "prove" their myths.
