VIDEO: Roman Villa Rustica in Mogorejlo, Bosnia & Herzegovina

Come with David and his friend Sasha as they take you around the first century Roman Villa Rustica in Bosnia and Herzegovina also known as Mogorjelo.

The site is mostly in ruins, but it has an interesting history. It served as a military base in early 4th century and is the largest excavated Roman site in Herzegovina. Its location is no accident – the Romans strategically chose is for being at the intersection of four rivers. That is what made Mogorejlo the perfect place trade outpost.
