Product description

The Carthage of today is a peaceful residential suburb and a successful holiday resort with wonderful beaches. The hotels and restaurants give few clues to its often troubled and violent 3000 year history. This book tells the story of Carthage, from the arrival of Princess Eiyssa in the land of the nomadic Berbers in the 9th or 8th century BC, to the rise of Carthage as an important sea power and its eventual growth into the capital of the Phoenician Empire.
