A major site in the Tunisian archaeological landscape, Sufetula – at present Sbeïtla – is one of the finest and the most accomplished illustration of Roman African past. It is also outstanding for its role as the “door” to the Moslem conquest of Africa since it was the site of the first battle on African soil between the two ancient powers of medieval times: the emerging Arab and the Byzantine.
The author leads us back to this rich and then so dramatic past, through a historical summary and a guided visit of the site. Numerous illustrations, plans and diagrams.
