Out of the Jurisdiction: Volubilis, Morocco



Volubilis is an excavated Roman ruin about one hour or so east of Rabat, Morocco.
The settlement dates to 168 B.C.  It was discovered and excavations began in 1915.  To date, it is estimated that only one third has been uncovered.  Perhaps the most impressive
discoveries are numerous mosaic floors.
