Summary
Established within a 19th Century palace, the museum features thousands of artefacts from excavations carried out throughout Tunisia, that date from the nation's Carthaginian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods. Inside the Bardo Museum, Tunisia, we expose Hollywood myths about Roman Gladiators, then find out if historical reports of child sacrifice are myths as well. We fire Roman catapults to test their killing power, then meet a camel whisperer to discover how he convinces camels to take him where he wants to go. We climb a mountain to survey Roman era waterworks, then meet a Star Wars super-fan as he discovers the connection between his favourite sci-fi franchise and the culture of a desert land.
