Berber People

There are many cultures and races forming the mosaic of people living in Tunisia today. It is possible to see the people living and working in a hich-tech environment side by side with nomadic people who live in tents and migrate continuously with their herds of camels and sheep from one area to the other all year-long.

The original inhabitants of Tunisia were the Berbers.
Many Berbers call themselves some variant of the word Imazighen (singular Amazigh), meaning "free men"

Mahdia

There are a number of important civilizations which took place on this land since the antiquity. Initially it started with the Phoenician settlement and colonization. Then Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans and French assumed the control over the land and its people. By being very successful maritime traders, Phoenicians taught the local Berbers advanced forms of agriculture and urban living.
