possibly had some governmental
function, but tuna fishing, salt-
ing and preserving, and the pro-
duction of garum (a fish paste/
sauce) were its primary sources
of wealth. Tuna passed through
the Straits to spawn in the east-
ern Mediterranean and returned
months later to swim back to the
Atlantic. Romans used perma-
nent nets to catch the tuna, just
as the Spanish fishermen use
today. Baelo Claudia provided
the Roman delicacy garum to the
whole Roman Empire.
     The town thrived during the
time of Emperor Claudius, who
gave the town its name. The
decline of Baelo Claudia began in
the 2nd century AD and was has-
tened by seaquakes and earth-
quakes. Hordes of Celtic and
Barbary pirates later plagued the
town, causing it to be aban-
doned, covered by sand and lost
to history.
     Audio-visual presentations,
nestled among the artifacts, lined
the walkways of the museum.
As we viewed the ancient fishing
equipment, we learned how they
caught tuna and preserved it by
using the salt vats. We watched
a video on the process of mak-
ing garum. Old tools hung from
the walls. We learned about the
society and daily life of Roman
times, including the recreation of
a Roman bedroom, religion and
funerary rites. Ancient funer-
ary urns (suitable for burial and
funerals) stood nearby.
     Stepping through the doors
on the lower level, we began
our journey through the ancient
city. The town followed the clas-
sic Roman model with its roads
running east to west and north
to south, bisecting to form rect-
     As we entered the town area,
we observed the remains of three
aqueducts, they supplied the
town with water. Awed by the
massive columns and beauti-
ful view, we continued on. We
viewed the remains of several dif-
ferent temples, including a tem-
ple to Isis an Egyptian goddess.
Continuing on we climbed some
steps and found ourselves in a
theater. It was located on a slope
to take advantage of terracing for
seating. I visualized the crowds
and the performers on stage.
     Closer to the sea we walked
on old, uneven, stone streets.
Great columns of the forum
(public square) rose like senti-
nels not far from the shore. We
were unable to tour the part of
the ruins closest to the shore due
to excavation and archaeological
digs. I learned this part consisted
