- World Heritage Sites in Algeria
Algeria was occupied by Roman forces from 200 BC until the fall of the Western Roman Empire in AD 476, giving the Berbers control of the country until they were ousted by the Byzantine Empire under Emperor Justinian I.
During the Middle Ages, Algeria was once again under the control of the Berbers, who were themselves divided into several tribes each exerting its own independence. Islam was brought to Algeria by Muslim Arabs in the mid-7th century. In the 16th century, Spain under its Catholic monarchs conquered several towns along the coast of North Africa but in most cities, held on to power for less than a century.
From 1517, Algeria came under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, which conquered the territories previously occupied by Spain. The Ottomans established Algeria's modern boundaries. Piracy preying on American vessels in the Mediterranean resulted in two wars fought with the United States, in 1801-05 and 1815.

France invaded and captured Algiers in 1830, leading to the French occupation of Algeria, which lasted until the early 20th century. During that time, France systematically integrated Algeria, making it part of France. Thousands of French people emigrated to settle in Algeria. In 1954, following the Algerian War of Independence, the French president Charles de Gaulle offered Algerians a choice, the result of which was a landslide vote of complete independence from France. Nonetheless some 10% of the population fled Algeria to see a new life in France.
Subsequent to independence, Algeria went through a long period of civil war which is only gradually subsiding in recent decades, and order is gradually being restored in the country.
