In 1983, within the framework of the international campaign for the conservation of Carthage launched in 1975 under the auspices of UNESCO, a French team led by the author, undertook to excavate the Hannibal quarter, at the foot of Byrsa Hill, dating to the IInd century BC and that was destroyed with the metropolis in 146 BC. In the rubble, archaeologists found enough elements to reconstruct an aspect of the city’s life, as well as the episodes leading to its death. The reconstruction is displayed in the National Carthage Museum in the Byrsa Gallery.
