Rome and Carthage were two great powers of ancient times. Rome mostly covered Italian territories and allied cities that she had conquered while Carthage was in the northern coast of Africa. Both cities had ambitions to go on and conquer other cities in order to become the World superpower leading to conflicts between them.

While Rome had consuls, and a senate, Carthage had magistrates and a council of elders.
Egypt, the mother of the world, the home of the Pharaohs and the pyramids, was colonized by Britain. Britain had the largest empire during the 1800’s and the 1900’s, controlling land in Southeast Asia and in the Americas. After WWI the Ottomans were forced to leave all of its land in Africa. The new countries in Africa, especially northern countries were an easy target for imperialism. Egypt was very important for two main reasons, one of them being the amount of food Egypt had and its strong reliable food source.
In this essay I will endeavor to examine Carthage and compare and contrast how its power rivaled Rome, I will look at the many similarities and differences in their way of life, and also how they came into conflict with each other.

They established many trading routes and partnerships throughout the Mediterranean Sea and even along the Atlantic coast. Carthage rapidly grew from a small port to a thriving trade hub and the epicenter of Phoenician commerce, this growth was accelerated by the arrival of many wealthy citizens of Tyre, the Phoenician capital, when
The Atlantic System grew between 1500 and 1800 because of numerous causes that increased trade between Europe, The Caribbean, and Africa.

Columbus’ journey provided a unique opportunity of exposure to new people, which helped the peoples of Europe to become more cultured. Because of the new sea routes discovered, trade could expand to farther places. The Europeans were making money off of cash crops planted in the fertile land, which helped them to become more powerful.
From the 16th to the 18th century, world superpowers from Europe and America alike sought to conquer more land as expressed through their colonization of bountiful countries and imperialism across the globe. Early instances of imperialism, including the Portuguese colonization of Brazil in the 1500s and the British colonization of the east coast of North America in the 1600s, had nations sending their own inhabitants to new lands and in search for money and power.

In the Classical Era, two influential empires emerged, Han China and the Roman Empire. Both were order-focused societies, which greatly supported the rise of these empires.
