Carthaginem esse delendam (Carthage must be destroyed) was how Cato the Censor concluded all his speeches in the Roman Senate. The Romans had a vivid image of the Carthaginian general Hannibal crossing the Alps with his elephants to attack Rome - a deed that still mesmerises the European imagination. Our exploration of life and death in the Carthaginian world considers solid archaeological evidence and Roman myth.
