Mons Claudianus

Mons Claudianus was a Roman quarry in the eastern desert of Egypt. It consisted of a garrison, a quarrying site, and civilian and workers' quarters. The site was discovered in 1823 by Wilkinson and Burton. The excavation of Mons Claudianus by the Romans occurred through two centuries, from the 1st century AD to the mid-3rd century AD. Mons Claudianus was an abundant source of Granodiorite for Rome, and was used in notable Roman structures including the emperor Hadrian's villa at Tivoli, public baths, the floors and columns of the temple of Venus, Diocletian's Palace at Split and the columns of the portico of the Pantheon in Rome were quarried at Mons Claudianus. Each was 39 feet (12 m) tall, five feet (1.5 m) in diameter, and 60 tons in weight.

Las Médulas

Las Médulas is a historic gold mining site near the town of Ponferrada in the region of El Bierzo (province of León, Castile and León, Spain). It was the most important gold mine (and largest open pit gold mine) in the entire Roman Empire. Advanced aerial surveys conducted in 2014 using LIDAR have confirmed the wide extent of the Roman-era works.

The spectacular landscape of Las Médulas resulted from the ruina montium (wrecking of the mountains), a Roman mining technique described by Pliny the Elder in 77 AD. Pliny also stated that 20,000 Roman pounds of gold were extracted each year. The exploitation, involving 60,000 free workers, brought 5,000,000 Roman pounds (1,650,000 kg) in 250 years.The technique employed was a type of hydraulic mining which involved undermining a mountain with large quantities of water. The water was supplied by interbasin transfer. At least seven long aqueducts tapped the streams of the La Cabrera district (where the rainfall in the mountains is relatively high) at a range of altitudes. The same aqueducts were used to wash the extensive alluvial gold deposits.

Trajan's Bridge

Trajan's Bridge (Romanian: Podul lui Traian; Serbian: Трајанов мост, Trajanov Most) or Bridge of Apollodorus over the Danube was a Roman segmental arch bridge, the first bridge to be built over the lower Danube. Though it was only functional for a few decades, for more than 1,000 years it was the longest arch bridge in both total and span length.
The structure was 1,135 m (3,724 ft) long (the Danube is now 800 m (2,600 ft) wide in that area), 15 m (49 ft) wide, and 19 m (62 ft) high, measured from the surface of the river. At each end was a Roman castrum, each built around an entrance, so that crossing the bridge was possible only by walking through the camps.
The wooden superstructure of the bridge was dismantled by Trajan's successor, Hadrian, in order to protect the empire from barbarian invasions from the North.
The twenty pillars were still visible in 1856, when the level of the Danube hit a record low.

Constantine Bridge

In the past there was another large Roman bridge over the Lower Danube. It was officially opened on 5 July, 328 in the presence of the emperor Constantine the Great. With an overall length of 2437 m, 1137 m of which spanned the Danube's riverbed, Constantine's Bridge is considered the longest ancient river bridge and one of the longest of all time. It was a construction with masonry piers and wooden arch bridge and with wooden superstructure. Constantine Bridge was constructed between
Sucidava (present-day Corabia, Olt County, Romania) and
Oescus (modern Gigen, Pleven Province, Bulgaria).

Today there are no remnants of this bridge. Near the site of Constantine Bridge the Romans built the Sucidawa castrum. Castrum remains can be seen in Cartier Celei 3 km west of Corabia (Romania).

Roman causeway to Djerba Island

Roman causeway from mainland to Djerba Island. Length about 6.35 km. Naer the place where the causeway connects to the island lies the Roman city
Meninx (Tunisia ). In the city there are remains of the theater, amphitheater, thermal baths, forum and the hippodrome. The ruins are heavily covered with sand. The site has not been thoroughly investigated to date.

Today, along the causeway leads a modern road and a fresh water pipeline.
