When on Google Earth, No. 11











Q: What is When on Google Earth?
A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins?
A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get?
A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!


Hehehe, I identified the Frankish fortress in Google Earth No. 10,
so it's my turn to host ... click on the photo to enlarge it.

Update - clues:
The site has something to do with Gaius Marius, and there are very few extant sites one can link with him with any certainty - most are fields. It's not Rome. There is no big mountain, so it's not the Mont Sainte Victoire. It's also not on the bay of Naples, as there is no shore line. The line of the walls is visible in the picture, as is at least a degree of town planning.

Update 2 - lots more views, and for those hoping for clues such as road signs, all I can say is that when I drove there I too would have liked a road sign or two ...
