Carthage! A book review

Carthage: Uncovering the Mysteries and Splendors of Ancient TunisiaCarthage: Uncovering the Mysteries and Splendors of Ancient Tunisia by Howard David Soren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this book. I have found it somewhat difficult to find books about ancient Carthage that don’t focus heavily on the Punic Wars. This book examined Carthage before and after the wars and looked at religion, the child sacrifice issue and the Carthaginians love of the sea and exploration. For anyone who wants some readable non-academic history about Cathage I recommend this book.
