Carthage Archaelogical Site

Carthage Archaelogical Site (Arabic: قرطاج‎ Qarṭāj) is a suburb of Tunis today. It was the centre of the Carthaginian Empire in antiquity. Historically Carthage has been known as: Latin: Carthago or Karthago, meaning New City. The first civilization that
developed within the city's sphere of influence is referred to as Punic (a form of the word "Phoenician") or Carthaginian. It became a large and rich city and thus a major power in the Mediterranean. The resulting rivalry with Syracuse, Numidia, and Rome was accompanied by several wars with respective invasions of each other's homeland. The archaelogical site is awarded as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
