Romans and Carthiginians

Cartagena, a seaport on the Murcian coast has recently rediscovered its Roman past. Over the last few years the tourist people have invented, and promoted, a new festival which features the Romans and their adversaries the Carthiginians - Hanibal was from Carthage.

We went down to have a look at the battle for Sagunto but we missed it. By the time we got there the Romans (or the Carthiginians) had put on their sunspecs and were getting the tourist train home!
