Battle opens with Roman technology


{Music: "Heiroglyphs" by Joe Carvalho}

A Roman General urges his troops forward

Elephants vs. Infantry

Hannibal's Elephants lead the advance



A Mahout (Elephant "driver") comforts his dying elephant


Carthaginians and Allies move to crush another Roman Legion


A view from the Howdah

Packed ranks of both sides crush together


African Warriors were part of the Strength of Carthaginian Armies

Desperate fighting was always a factor around each War Elephant


Celtic Cavalry appeared on many battlefields


A Roman Cohort stands firm

Massed ranks clash under a darkening sky
