Scattered around the archaeological site of Bosra are the remains of numerous other ancient structures. They are neither identified by a sign at the site, nor in any guidebook, probably because not enough research has been conducted to piece together their history. In some cases these ruins may have been churches or temples, but in others they were probably palaces or dwellings. Nevertheless, it is quite fun to wander through some of these ruins and to draw one's conclusions. Attached are a few photos.
