Fair use rationale for Image:Africa Romana.gif
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.
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.

The barbaric hordes
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. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:34, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Romano-Byzantine rule survived in Algeria during Vandal occupations?
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...

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.

Let it Be. The artilce "Africa (Roman province)" is predominantly cast in the form of a series of lists of articles, which lists work well when collected into that current article. The "History of Roman-era Tunisia" article, however, contains the text of an historical narrative. Each article now has its strengths and utility. To attempt to merge the two would likely result in the diminution of both articles. Elfelix (talk) 11:01, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
- The "anachronism" issue is a red herring, like saying a History of France cannot include prehistory, or the Roman period, or Charlemagne, because in those eras the territory was not called France, nor the people called French. Please note that this issue of nomenclature was addressed in the introductory article History of Tunisia, where various historical names for land of Tunisia are listed.
