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. ].
