It is the tale of a saga initiated during Antiquity by long lost civilizations, the Phoenicians and the Carthaginians, succeded by waves of conquerors- first the Greeks of Marseille and the Roman Legions of Julius Caesar, and more recently, more peaceful visitors with cameras and tour-buses: the modern tourists! This is the story... Now, dont expect anything like your usual textbook, no glorification of the Sun King or Napoleon, oh, no! After a fairly straight forward start which follows the Historical timeline, we slowly veer off the middle of the road and take a fresh look at what you thought you knew so well...
