Djemila, another Roman city.

Djemila is another Roman city that is very well preserved. It is from the first century AD and was first populated by Roman soldiers from Italy, but it soon became a trading center and it was populated with 20000. Caracalla rebuilt part of the city with an Arch of Triumph, a new forum and a theater i a hillside.DSCF0496DSCF0513DSCF0528

In the fourth century Christianity was popular and a baptistery and a basilica were built and part of the city was called Christian quarter,DSCF0485bDSCF0489

Many of the houses had mosaic, but these were moved to a too small and overloaded museum. It was not allowed to take pictures inside the museum, but I took one before I was stopped.DSCF0467

It was plenty  of details to take pictures of and here are some.

I took some pictures of people as well, some without they being aware of it, and some I asked first.
