History of Tunisia

Independence: 20 March 1956 (from France)

At the beginning of recorded history, Tunisia was inhabited by Berber tribes. Its coast was settled by Phoenicians starting as early as the 10th Century B.C. In the 6th Century B.C., Carthage rose to power, but it was conquered by Rome [ 2nd Century B.C. ].

The Punic Wars: Rome, Carthage and the Struggle for the Mediterranean 
Nigel Bagnall
The Punic Wars (264-146 BC) sprang from a mighty power struggle between two ancient civilizations - the trading empire of Carthage and the military confederation of Rome. Though this took place more than 2000 years ago, Nigel Bagnall argues that it has remarkable contemporary significance.
