Roman ruins at Volubilis in Morocco

At first glance the ruins of Volubilis in Morocco seem to be just a pile of old rocks, some still in place, others scattered on the ground. These Roman ruins were very badly damaged in an earthquake in the mid 18th century.

On closer inspection, however, I was amazed at the details in the colourful mosaic tiling in the floors, and some of the engravings on the stone work, such as the columns shown in today’s photos.
