Select Letters Jerome Wright, F. Last edited: Nov 15, The fact that this rich and affluent civilization lacks Catholic Christianity would make it a target for continuous aggression from westward moving European adventurers. Well I reckon that if such a civilisation grew up although I personally doubt the Carthaginians had the technology to built ocean-going ships it would be fairly prosperous- the Carthagianians would bring the diseas of Europe early on so the Mesoamericans could become accustomed ot them or destroyed as OTL.
Either way, I reckon that if left to stew without Rome etc. Or indeed, the Romans could copy Carthaginian designs as they did in the 1st Punic War and follow them. Now there's an idea, Rome and Carthage in the New World. Slightly ASB but a great idea! Historians are in dispute over whether or not Carthaginians and their Punic brethren sacrificed their offspring. Surviving records in the Punic language make no mention of it. And this one fella called Sergio Ribichini seems convinced that the Tophet was simply a cemetary for children whom died of natural causes. And the Carthaginians would need sturdier ships than Triremes and Quinqueremes to navigate the Atlantic.
It would be possible Hawaii is the most isolated island in the world and its "natives" got there on canoes. For all their prospects, I can't see why they would frequently sacrifice their own children, or anyone elses. This is a really cool idea. What 'Europe'? The idea of any kind of pan-continental consciousness didn't emerge until the later days of the Roman Empire, and it wasn't until Charlemagne's time that sophisticated states started to emerge in Europe that didn't gravitate solely around the Mediterranean.
If Carthage maintains western hegemony, then its not certain that the centre of geo-political gravity will ever drift north into Europe. Southern Europe will probably become heavily Punicised, and the rest of Europe will probably remain much more tribal for much longer than in OTL. Assuming an initial set of people from probably a single exodus. OK, so we reach carrying capacity first. So, that empire could cover both Americas and be densely populated They'd likely have iron, even if not e.
Typo Banned Joined: Jul 3, Without constant contact with their homeland, there's a significant chance that even a sizable colonizing population will "go native", when Columbus-analogue comes along, they might just be another tribe with supposely mystical origins from a far-away land. That been said, it is possible the whole region's technology level gets boosted up to that of iron age Europe in some areas, that might have some effect on conquest of the area.
But overall, the Carribean probably still fall to European invasions. Nov 16, Well with the problem of going native doesn't it beg the question of how large was the Arawak population of Cuba in BC? If it is immensly more than the Carthaginians then yes ofcourse its very likely and the Arawaks would likely just absorb a few customs and technologies of convenience such as the wheel.
