This unit will specifically investigate the back-story to one of the greatest confrontations in the history of the Ancient World: the rivalry between Carthage and Rome. It will explore the extent to which it is possible to reclaim the history of Carthage from the grip of hostile Greek and Roman historians. What will emerge is a vibrant and dynamic civilisation that dominated much of the southern and western Mediterranean for over three centuries.
