Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Phoenicians, then pay attention... 

The Phoenicians remain one of the most enigmatic ancient civilizations, with historians and scholars prone to speculation and educated guesses. Although many Greek, Roman, and Egyptian writers reference the Phoenicians in trade records, military battles, and artistic transactions, few records were left by the original Phoenicians themselves, leaving modern scholars to fill in the blanks through educated guesses and material culture.

The ancient perception about this civilization was mixed. For every writer like Pomponius Mela who lavished praise upon the Phoenicians, there was another who derided the people as nothing more than cheats and hucksters who kept other states’ trade stymied through stranglehold networks and ridiculous deals. 

In The Phoenicians: A Captivating Guide to the History of Phoenicia and the Impact Made by One of the Greatest Trading Civilizations of the Ancient World, you will discover chapters, such as:

  • Origins
  • The World of the Phoenicians
  • Political and Legal Structures
  • Daily Life
  • Beauty and Apparel
  • An Unwritten Early History
  • Vassal to the Empires
  • Trade and the Economy
  • Language and Alphabet
  • Religion
  • Warfare
  • Artistry in Multiple Mediums
  • And much, much more!

Recommended

I was honestly shocked at the lack of real historical data about the life of Spartacus. Although you will not know this shortage of actual documentation because the writer does an excellent job of explaining the bits and pieces, making usually the known and the likely opportunities into a captivating story.

A good introduction

This audiobook looks at one of the best continuously populated cities in the world, and how it has passed hands based on various successes, from the Phoenicians to Alexander the Great, the Romans, the Crusaders, the Arabs, and Ottomans.

Enjoyed it

it forever got around to suggesting that the Phoneticians were outstanding sailors and this led to research and this made for the movement of goods from one culture to another; enabling economies to develop and prosper.
