Gustave Flaubert lived in this house when he wrote his historical novel Salammbô. This 19th century house, in the Carthage Punic Harbor, seems now abandoned. The novel Salammbô is set in Punic Carthage during the 3rd century BC and tells the mercenary revolt which took place shortly after the first punic war between Rome and Carthage. #Carthage #Flaubert #Salammbô #Tunisia #Tunisie #Tunez #Archaeology #history #phoenician #punic
