The World Heritage Site of Volubilis in northern Morocco is near Fes.  Founded in pre-Roman times, it was the southernmost African outpost of the Roman Empire, becoming a thriving city during the 2nd century AD, before being destroyed by an earthquake.  Volubilis, whose Roman ruins include a well-preserved Basilica, a complete triumphal arch, the columns of a Capitoline temple, and mosaics, expanded during the 9th century AD as an Islamic centre.  This project, developed with academics in London, France and Morocco, proposed to open up and record the Islamic Quarter, protect the entire site and enhance the visitor experience.
