Detail of a stone relief in the garden of the National Archaelogical Museum, Carthage, Tunisia, pictured on January 29, 2008, in the morning. Carthage was founded in 814 BC by the Phoenicians who fought three Punic Wars against the Romans over this immensely important Mediterranean harbour. The Romans finally conquered the city in 146 BC. Subsequently it was conquered by the Vandals and the Byzantine Empire. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage. The National Archaeological Museum (Musee National de Carthage) houses an impressive collection of Punic and Christian relics found in the excavations, including stelae, jewellery, sarcophagi and reliefs.
