Native Tunisians are descendants of indigenous Berber and Arab tribes that migrated to North Africa during the seventh century.
Recorded history in Tunisia begins with the arrival of Phoenicians, who founded Carthage and other North African settlements. Carthage was captured by the Romans in AD 146, and the Romans continued to rule North Africa until they were defeated by Germanic tribesmen from Europe in the fifth century.
The Muslim conquest in the seventh century transformed North Africa. Tunisia became a center of Arab culture until its assimilation into the Turkish Ottoman Empire in the 16th century. In the 19th century, in 1869, an international financial commission was formed, and France, the United Kingdom, and Italy established control over the Tunisian economy. France later established a protectorate in Tunisia, in 1881. Resistance to French rule continued into the 20th century, and this rise of nationalism led to Tunisia's independence in 1956.On Jan 14, Tunisian youth revolted against a 23 years regime, beginning a revolution that eventually spread to the rest of the Arab World, known as the Arabic Spring. Hand made ceramics from Nabeul (Neapolis, or New City) ancient battlefield for the Greek founded in the 5th Century AC and twin sister to an other Neapolis (Naples, Italy), is the Capital of the Ceramic in Tunisia. Thanks to its strategic location in the Central Coast of the Mediterranean and the diversity of its agricultural produces, Nabeul has known a massive flow of immigrants from all over the Mediterranean who brought with them a know-how in agriculture development as well as in manufacturing industries. Throughout its history, a variety of nations held control of Tunisia, and people from other nations migrated to this North African country.
This led to the variety of cultures living in Tunisia today. These Mediterranean cultural influences are apparent in the beautiful designs, patterns, and glazes of traditional Tunisian ceramics, cloth tapestries, woven carpets, and the intricate olive wood carvings that Tunisia is known for all over the world.
