Fair use rationale for Image:Africa Romana.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Africa Romana.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 02:54, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

The barbaric hordes[edit]

The "barbaric invasions" has now been reduced to "the great germanic migrations"! I don't think the romans viewed it as either great or as a a migration.Eurocentricism at it's best. 210.50.72.84 (talk) 05:34, 30 November 2007 (UTC)


But surely the Romans are/were also European? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.158.190.184 (talk) 13:37, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Romano-Byzantine rule survived in Algeria during Vandal occupations?[edit]

One of my most respected sources, Bruce Gordan's Regnal Chrononlogies, makes a mention in his entry for the city of Constantine in north Africa. And Euratlas' maps of Europe in 500 AD and 600 AD both show a "Kingdom of the Romans and Moors in Algeria, not under Vandal control.

They also show a distinct "Mauri" kingdom in Morrocco.

Would it be plausible to then say that part of the Western Empire survived the fall of Nepos and Syagrius? I unfortunately don't yet have more information, and wanted to bring it to your mutual attentions. It would make a very interesting note in this and a few other articles...

Africa ProvinceAfrica (Roman province) — Because "Africa Province" sounds utterly unnatural and to bring the article into line with the other provinces with disambiguators in Category:Ancient Roman provinces. 189.136.163.28 (talk) 15:55, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

I agree absolutely. Have you checked the number of article affected? Cynwolfe (talk) 18:20, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
On that category page, I can only see Iudaea Province (didn't see it the first time). Ugh. 189.136.163.28 (talk) 01:54, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
That should probably also be Iudaea (Roman province). Someone's been doing some strange things to the Africa article. Cynwolfe (talk) 02:56, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

History of Roman-era Tunisia is an anachronistic topic because Tunisia did not exist at that time. What existed was a recently annexed Carthage that gradually became Roman. However, there may be some useful information, which could be incorporated into Africa (Roman province). --Article editor (talk) 18:54, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Merge. Agree that the topic "History of Roman-era Tunisia" is not meaningful. Probably "Africa (Roman province)" is best place. Hard to define precisely with articles on Carthage, Carthaginian Empire and Phoenicia in existence. While they don't overlap in time, they certainly do in geography.
