Photographer's Note

The Roman ruins of Volubilis lie about 33km north of the city of Meknes. It was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997 and is the best preserved archaeological site in Morocco, including many lovely mosaics preserved in situ.
According to excavations is seems that the site was originally settled by Carthaginian traders in the 3rd century BC and was anexed by the Romans in about AD40, and housed up to 20,000 people
We made a day trip here from Meknes by hiring a grand taxi (old mercedes benz cars) for the day. Got here early in the morning and were the only people until we left, the only accompanyment was this dog who walked with us the whole time.
