The North African country, Algeria, is a real living museum as it has hosted many empires and dynasties in the past including the ancient Roman Empire, Vandals, Spaniards, Ottomans, and the French colonial empire in the 19th Century. The Berbers are, however, the indigenous inhabitants of Algeria.
There are ancient ruins from all these old empires and dynasties that once ruled that country and most of them have been listed as World Heritage Sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meaning they have official status and protection.
