After exploring El Jem’s Roman amphitheater and the town that surrounds it, we went to the archaeological museum. Roman mosaics excavated nearby constitute 95% of its exhibits. That single-mindedness works, since what the museum lacks in breadth it more than makes up for in breadth. Again I was struck by how long these pieces have endured and wondered what of our own culture will be exhibited two thousand years from now.
