- Behold the wonders of ancient Carthage.
Peter Weller again turns our attention to the impressive engineering feats of another of the great ancient societies: Carthage.
On the coast of modern-day Tunisia flourished the great port city of Carthage: the magnificent capital of a superpower that rivaled Ancient Rome. In fact, when the Romans engineered their own empire, they were only following the lead of the Carthaginians, whom they defeated in the Punic Wars.
Take a fascinating look at this great society from this program’s unique perspective. From the city's grand harbor to the rise of one of history's greatest generals – Hannibal Barca – ENGINEERING AN EMPIRE examines the architecture and infrastructure that enabled the rise and fall of the Carthaginian Empire.
