Carthage was an empire that grew off the Mediterranean Sea. Located in modern day Tunisia, Africa the geographical location of Carthage provided many advantages. The most important geographical feature Carthage had was the Mediterranean Sea, the Mediterranean provided a body of water the Carthaginians could use to establish trade with other empires, along with allowing the Carthaginians to farm due to the coastline keeping the land fertile and good for farming.Over time Carthage became a major trading power throughout the Mediterranean world and began to prosper but Carthage was about to meet her match when it came to geographical advantages and prosperity eventually leading to the Punic Wars.
