The pride and joy of the Bardo Museum. This mosaic is from Homer’s Odyssey as Ulysses’ ship approached the Island of the Sirens. The mosaic was found in Dougga and dates to around 260AD. If you enjoy mosaics, this museum is something to see.
A variety of mosaics to fit every surface.
Just a small piece of a massive floor mosaic that must have been around 15′ by 30′ or more. Instead of carpets, the wealthy Romans would decorate their floors with mosaics.
A thin strip of a beautiful mosaic at the Bardo Museum in Tunis. People say it holds the best collection of Roman-era mosaics in the world. Most of the collection is from El Jem, Dougga or Carthage, Tunisia.
Walking below ground level at the El Jem Roman amphitheater built in the 3rd century AD. This is where the animals would have been kept until being moved above ground for the Roman events. They opened up the ground floor (overhead) to allow in extra light for visitors.
