North Africa is one of the most populated Regions in the Roman Empire. At the beginning of the 3. Cent. A.D. a tremendous agglomeration of cities was located in Africa proconsularis which had a very individual urban culture. This book deals with the question: how the economy and the cultural identity of a micro-region shaped their cityscapes? Thanks to an interconnected analysis of architecture, rural hinterland and their inhabitants the author shows how a regional understanding of the city altered the urban landscape.
