For two centuries Rome struggled with Carthage, finally winning a decisive victory and annexing the Punic territories into the Empire. The Roman province of Africa, today’s Tunisia, prospered for five centuries before its decline and downfall. Although not as well documented in ancient literature and not as frequently visited by tourists as many other parts of the Empire, Roman Africa possesses some of the best preserved Roman cities. This video offers a stunning visual tour of five impressive sites: Carthage, Dougga, Sbeitla, Bulla Regia, and El Djem.
