The Phoenicians

Post  isaacbueno.4 on Sat Oct 04, 2014 2:14 pm


Did you know that the Phoenicians were located in the coast of the eastern Mediterranean, in modern-day Lebanon. Another thing is that the Phoenicians were a colonizer which is invading and taking over of foreign territory some territories they took were Gades and Carthage. Some legends say that a pharaoh asks some Phoenicians to map the coasts of Africa for them. They were also known as sea traders, that’s why they lived in coast. Two of the most precious things they traded with people are the merex shell which made a purple dye and a tree which was only found in their country. Very Happy

I have a Suggestion. You could use more commas tongue . But either way you did great job explaining the Phoenicians. Did you know that people say that they traveled all the way to present day Spain. Another fact that you might have known is that thay had a clomplex system of writing. Really Good Post Isaac Very Happy

The Phoenicians were actually very wealthy people because of their trade, their building of ships, and they also seem to have created the alphabet. The Phoenicians also traded clothing and some other things. A place that they traded with was India and the things that they needed or wanted from India were their spices. The Phoenicians were very talented and wealthy people.

Great post Isaac! Did you know that they also had an alphabet? They also traded other things like cloths, glass, and pottery. And they traded for Tin (in Britannia), Hides, ivory, ostrich feathers, slaves (Africa), gold, precious stones, and spices (in India). Great topic! Very Happy

Good work! The geography of Phoenicians was important for them. You are right, they were located on the Mediterranean coast. The Sea played an important role in their lives. The Phoenicians were well-known for their goods and ships. Another thing they are famous for is their alphabet.
