Dougga / Thugga - Tunisia

Before the Roman annexation of Numidia, the town of Thugga, built on an elevated site overlooking a fertile plain, was the capital of an important Libyco-Punic state. 
It flourished under Roman and Byzantine rule, but declined in the Islamic period. 
The impressive ruins that are visible today give some idea of the resources of a small Roman town on the fringes of the empire.
