Museum of Djemila (Roman
Cuicul in modern-day Algeria): The Museum is to the left on entering the site and, as ever, is best visited before the ruins. At quiet times, it is kept locked, but will be opened if you ask at the entrance to the site. Outside the museum building there are some of the many tombstones and other funerary sculptures, the outer walls
lined with mosaics
salvaged from the site, the covered court housing busts of the emperor Septimus Severus and his wife, Julia Domna.
