Carthage was captured by the Romans in AD 146, and the Romans
continued to rule North Africa until they were defeated by Germanic
tribesmen from Europe in the fifth century.

Tunisia became a center of Arab culture until its assimilation into
the Turkish Ottoman Empire in the 16th century.

was formed, and France, the United Kingdom, and Italy established
control over the Tunisian economy. France later established a
protectorate in Tunisia, in 1881. Resistance to French rule
continued into the 20th century, and this rise of nationalism led to
Tunisia's independence in 1956.

against a 23 years regime, beginning a revolution that eventually
spread to the rest of the Arab World, known as the "Arabic Spring."

carvings that Tunisia is known for all over the world.
