Chariot wheel ruts can still be seen in Timgad, the ruins of an ancient Roman colonial town in north eastern Algeria. Columns are along both sides of the street that runs under an arch in the distance. The town was founded around 100 AD. The ruins demonstrate the grid plan used in Roman city planning. There are hills in the far distance.
