These were taken at Volubilis, the Roman ruins outside Fez. The site was originally inhabited by Carthaginians in the 3rd century BC, and then by the Romans until it was destroyed by an earthquake towards the end of the 4th century AD. It was reinhabited for a while in the 6th century AD. It's now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it's very pretty and peaceful. The mosaics are wonderful: the close-up in the second to last picture shows a three-headed dog with a serpent's tail.
