The PhoeniciansBook - 1988
The ancient Phoenician civilization is still shrouded in mystery. Scholars question when the Phoenicians became powerful, where they came from, and how they came to be such brilliant navigators and merchants that they colonized much of the Mediterranean rim. This detailed study of the Phoenicians is filled with important essays and illustrations that trace the rise and fall, the art and customs, the trade and exploration, and the rich legacy of this fascinating culture.
