Carthage: The Roman Holocaust (2004)

This is the story of Rome and Carthage - two great ancient empires, deadly foes equally matched in strength, locked in a struggle for control of the ancient world. But when Rome finally won the conflict, they went on to annihilate the city and civilisation of Carthage, systematically, brutally and totally. This film tells the story behind Rome's Holocaust against Carthage, and rediscovers the strange, exotic civilisation that the Romans were desperate to obliterate. Cambridge University historian and archaeologist Dr Richard Miles visits the key sights of the period, from Rome to the ruins of Carthage, and uncovers the real importance of this largely forgotten civilisation.
