Carthage: Pride of the Desert

Carthage: Pride of the Desert

"Recommended. A solid documentary, it paints a broad-brush coverage of the history of Carthage from its founding to French occupation up through Roman rule. Each section is preceded by a title, helpful for instructors should they choose to show only certain segments." -EMRO Review
Located a short sail from the Italian peninsula, Carthage was known throughout the ancient world as a center of commerce and a producer of world-class dyes. Founded by a Tyrian princess, and colonized by the Phoenicians, Carthage found itself in heated conflict with the mighty Roman Empire. Recent archaeological discoveries have revealed more Roman remains and ruins than any other site in the world, except for Rome itself. Scholars have learned much of Carthaginian life and its ancient human sacrifices to appease the cruel sun gods. It is a city both chilling and mysterious in its revelations. Produced by William, Adi and Tal McAbian. 02/08DE SCA 52 min.
