Contest #724: Timgad, Algeria

Timgad Trajan.jpg

Timgad is a fine example of a Roman city from the Trajanian period (CE 93-117). Cities built during this period held tightly to grid planning. The fact that this site represents this planning methodology so well was one of the reasons for Timgad’s inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1982.
