Tunisia Map
Evidence exists to suggest that the Phoenicians were the first settlers in the area we now know as Tunisia, arriving here around the 10th century BC and establishing the city of Carthage in 814 BC. Carthage found itself at war with Rome from 218 to 202 BC (the Punic Wars) and was eventually conquered by the latter despite the efforts of Hannibal in his invasion of Italy. French troops were ordered to leave in 1961 but were unprepared to do so and fighting ensued. After a tense political struggle between the two countries, France finally withdrew its military presence from the country, two years after it has first been instructed to do so.
