As is often the case when studying ancient societies, it can often be beneficial to study it as the past of a present day government. Often the information is not extensive, but useful as an overview and reference for future bibliographical searches.
Grant, Michael, and R Kitzinger. Civilization of the Ancient Mediterranean: Greece and Rome. Vol 3. New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 1988.
A great way to figure out what that obscure keyword in your reading is. Also provides maps of many ancient areas and the movements of ancient peoples.
Historical Atlas of the World. , Maplewood: Hammond, 1993.
Arguably one of the most useful reference tools for any student of history or the classics. Maps are provided for all major civilizations from the cradles of civilization to the present day world.
Konin, Peter. "Peter Konins Ancient Rome Page." [Internet] accessed 20 Oct 1996. http://www.detour.com/~pkonin.
The most useful homepage for studying Roman Africa of all I searched. Not so much for the page itself, but for all the great and numerous links.
Millar, Fergus, ed. The Roman Empire and Its Neighbors. New York: Dell, 1967.
Describes Rome and all of its provinces in high detail, with a large section devoted to Africa. A little lacking in the interpretation of Roman goals, however, being more fact only oriented.
Mommsen, Theodor. Provinces of the Roman Empire. Vol 2. New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 1887.
Despite being outdated and unable to provide more current evidence and history, still a good resource for studying some provinces. The title is somewhat misleading, in that not all provinces of the Roman empire are discussed.
Oliver, Roland . A Short History of Africa. Baltimore. Penguin Books Ltd. 1968.
Beautifully concise history of Romes occupation in Africa. Holds a special interest also for those wishing to know more about the previous inhabitants of the land, especially the Berber.
Oxford Classical Dictionary. 2d ed. 1970. s.v. "Africa, Roman" and "Numidia".
A good place to start research, keep while researching and double check your research with.
Raven, Susan. Rome in Africa. 3d ed. New York: Routledge, 1993.
Hands down, as one might ascertain from the title, the best resource I had for putting together this project. A detailed and reader friendly (i.e. mostly jargon free) account of everything, and I mean everything, that had to do with both Rome and Africas time together.
