Carthage was founded in the 9th century B.C. on the Gulf of Tunis. From the 6th century onwards, it developed into a great trading empire covering much of the Mediterranean and was home to a brilliant civilization. In the course of the long Punic wars, Carthage occupied territories belonging to Rome, which finally destroyed its rival in 146 B.C. A second ? Roman ? Carthage was then established on the ruins of the first.

Samantha was one of the best field archaeologists we have had at the ruins of Chartage. She was very methodical, had a good planning approach and excellent research and analysis skills. Another skill that impressed me was her passion for history. I would love to have her on our team again.

Professional Skills
I feel the luckiest girl in the earth since my passion has become my major and work. Research: Aproach to the area's background, population, structures and how the landscape may have changed over time.
  • Excavation: Dividing the site in portions of 1 meter square areas. Meticulously excavation until no more cultural material is found. Removing soil with trowels, paintbrushes or dental picks. Photographing and mapping of larger artifacts. Worked with many screened techniques in order to save little pieces from soil removed. Bagging and labeling objects with information on the soil layer from which they came, the excavator's names and site number.
  • Analysis: Objects examination to learn how and when they were made and used.
  • Preservation and consultancy: I have a wide experience managing artifacts from sites all over, in archaeology sites, archaeology offices, museums, and research facilities.
  • Personal Skills

    If I would have to choose 3 Personal Skills I would highlight the following:


    • Organized: I consider organization the basis of any good job. Being organized just requires a little bit of perseverance.
    • Dedicated: I give all my efforts when I am working for a project. It is important to not defeat and always be on steadfast pursuit to our aim.
    • Responsible: Although my versatility I consider myself a very responsive person whatever it is the project I am in charge of.
