Western Outpost of Roman North Africa

Unknown - 2007
Rate this:
Once the Berber town of Volubilis, in modern-day Morocco, was absorbed into the Roman Empire, subsequent construction aimed at Romanizing it. The result was a blend of European and African, imperial and tribal, that brought out some of the best of both worlds. This program tours the ruins of the town to point out key landmarks and explain their primary political purpose: to tightly bind this important defensive outpost to the interests of Rome. Monuments, inscriptions, and mosaics offer insights into the civic, social, and private life of the municipality. Commentary is provided by Rachid Bouzidi, assistant curator at Volubilis, and former curator Hassan Limane.
