Archaeological Site of Volubilis

A thirty minute taxi trip from Meknes are the extensive remains of what was an important town on the edges of the Roman Empire, founded in the 3rd century BC. There are a variety of styles of mosaic floors and houses whose floor plans, rooms around a pillared pool, are very clear, even if rather weed grown.

 There are quite a few complete columns standing (although at least two are in the gate at Meknes photographed yesterday), particularly in the forum.

I had rather thought that a Lego rendering of a Roman ruin would be straightforward, but I was wrong.  This is the best I could do, including the stork’s nest on top of one pillar:
