The History and Archaeology of Phoenicia

2 - 4 Weken

The History and Archaeology of Phoenicia draws on written sources and archaeological excavations to present the history and archaeology of Iron Age Phoenicia proper. Hélène Sader's unique approach focuses on evidence from the Phoenician homeland rather than the colonies, to present a clear picture of Phoenicia and its inhabitants. Historical as well as modern maps with the locations of relevant archaeological sites familiarize readers with the topography and toponymy of the area. Sader's evaluation and synthesis of the evidence is a corrective to assumptions of a unified Phoenician kingdom as presented in later written sources.
