Carthage, destroyed by the Romans in 146 BC, was founded by Phoenician migrants, who settled in the north of what is now Tunisia, around the ninth century BC. It was a central point for trading over sea and over land into the African continent. This book provides an up-to-date review of the ancient city's history, politics, and commerce and its place in the searfaring cultures of the ancient Mediterranean.
Exploring both written and archaeological evidence, The Carthaginians reveals a complex, multicultural and innovative people whose culture was influenced by North African and Greek cultures and also influenced a large part of the Western Mediterranean.
