Punic palace imperiled at Cartagena?

PUNIC WATCH: Flats could destroy Cartagena’s legacy of Carthage (London Times). That would be a pity.

Cartagena, Spain, is very proud of its Punic heritage. It celebrates an annual Romans and Carthaginians Festival in September.

I hope the authorities can arrange a proper exploration of the site, which Mr. Negueruela believes to be the remains of Hasdrubal's palace. It would be in their interest to support what could become a major tourist attraction.
