Coins from the Vandal City of Carthage
After breaking a peace treaty with the Romans in 439, Genseric (435-477) laid siege to Carthage, capturing the city without much of a fight. Carthage was made the new capital of the Vandal Kingdom, holding that status until 534, when the kingdom fell and the city went to the Byzantines. While some sources say Vandal rule in Carthage caused widespread destruction, archaeological evidence shows unbroken streets, renovated buildings, and new industrial centres, meaning Vandal rule may not have been as devastating as once thought.
