View from the central restored garden of the Maison de la Cascade at the Roman site of Utica in Tunisia. The view is north toward the reconstructed main doorway. Excavation of this large house during the 1940s to 1960s uncovered numerous figurative and geometric mosaics. In a room off the peristyle, trainees carry out maintenance operations on the mosaic pavements. Photo: Richard Ross.
