    Cadiz, Spain Earliest inhabitation: 1,100 BC Found on a narrow spit of land jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, Cadiz has been the home of the Spanish navy since the 18th century. It was founded by the Phoenicians as a small trading post and fell to the Carthaginians around 500BC, becoming a base for Hannibals conquest of Iberia. It then came under Roman and Moorish rule, before experiencing a renaissance during the Age of Exploration.

    Roman Roads The principle Roman road in Jordan is the famous Via Nova Traiana, which some milestones explain extended ‘from the borders of Syria as far as the Red Sea’. In fact, it ran from southern Syria, through the provincial capital of Arabia at Bostra, right down past Petra to Aila on the Gulf of Aqaba, a total of c. 350 km (from Ancient Jordan from the Air).
