carthage

Carthage was once one of the great trading cities of the ancient world, but it's now most famous for its end at the hands of Rome in what came to be known as the Punic Wars.

The censor Marcius Porcius Cato said: "Carthago delenda est." (Carthage must be destroyed.) And so it was – the land ploughed with salt.

Bloggers writing about Carthage may be looking at fictional recreations of its history, about visiting the site in modern-day Tunisia, or playing war games based on the ancient conflict.

Or they might be writing about events in the American city of Carthage, Missouri.
