Mérida - Roman theatre

Since already a lot of pictures of the Roman theatre of Mérida can be found on TE I present you here its backside :)
On the right side of the photo you see a small part of the seats of the theater.
The picture was taken at the end of a dark, cloudy winter day.
In the workshop a more classic presentation.

The Roman Theatre of Mérida is a construction promoted by the consul Vipsanius Agrippa in the Roman city of Emerita Augusta, capital of Lusitania (current Mérida, Spain).
It was constructed in the years 16 to 15 BCE.

Following the theatre's abandonment in Late Antiquity, it was slowly covered with earth.
The excavations of the theater began in 1910, directed by archaeologist José Ramón Mélida.
But it lasted until the late nineteenth century before most of the building was excavated.
