The history and archeological museum had complete mosaic floors and walls that had been found and removed from old Roman homes and monuments. Dale really liked these. Here are a few examples.

We spent two hours in the museum, mainly looking at the exhibits relating back to the Roman period.

After the Romans left in the late 400s, the town really died, ultimately dropping in population from 80,000 to 2,000. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the population got back up to the size that it was in Roman times.
