EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back in time to the ancient city of Timgad (Thamugadi) nestled in the Algerian hinterlands. Taken around 1900, it showcases a mesmerizing view of this Roman marvel with the so-called Market of Sertius stealing the spotlight, while the tall columns of the Campidoglio stand proudly in the background. The image captures a moment frozen in history, allowing us to witness firsthand the remnants of an ancient civilization that thrived over a thousand years ago. Timgad was founded around 100 AD as a Roman colony and served as an important hub for trade and commerce. The Market of Sertius, prominently featured here, would have been bustling with activity as merchants from far and wide gathered to sell their wares. The architectural splendor on display is awe-inspiring. The intricate details and grandeur evident in every column, colonnade, and building element speak volumes about Roman artistry and engineering prowess. Despite being weathered by time, these ruins still exude a sense of majesty that leaves viewers captivated. As we gaze upon this photograph taken by Bougault from Alinari's collection, we are reminded not only of Algeria's rich historical heritage but also its connection to Africa's ancient civilizations. This snapshot serves as a testament to humanity's enduring fascination with our past and our relentless pursuit to uncover its secrets through archeological excavations. Let this remarkable image transport you back through centuries as you imagine yourself strolling through Timgad's streets or perusing goods at its vibrant market. It stands as both an artistic masterpiece capturing timeless beauty and an invaluable window into our shared human history.
