Moroccan City Holds Secrets from Roman Through Medieval Times

Moroccan archaeologists from the National Institute of Archaeological Sciences and Heritage are combing through research discovered during a recent excavation of the Roman city of Thamusida and its medieval layers up to Islamic times.

A Roman frontier town, complete with houses, baths and temples, Thamusida also was found to have Islamic thermal baths. Archaeologists are using magnetic surveying to help reconstruct later periods.
