The Romans fought three great wars with their deadly rival Carthage, with victory leading to Rome’s control of the Western Mediterranean. Prior to these epic conflicts, Carthage also fought the Greeks for over 200 years for control of Sicily, and the trade routes around South Italy.

Come and explore the many lives of this important ancient city, from its Phoenician origins to its rebirth as the Roman Empire’s third largest city, and finally its central role in the rise of Christianity.
