The Phoenicians

Post  dashas on Mon Oct 06, 2014 11:59 pm

Phoenicians lived along the coast of Mediterranean sea. All their life was based on it. They traded with so many countries all around the world. They were really good in building their ships. Their ships were nicely done and they also knew how to fix and take care of them. The Phoenicians had their own system of writing in which each symbol (picture, image) was representing a sound, but then, overtime they made one picture represent a single word.The phoenicians brought many contributions to our todays life. The legend says that even an Egyptian Pharaoh asked a group of Egyptians to circumnavigate Africa and draw a map of it.

That's a great post Dasha! Some of their cities were Tyre, Cartage, Byblos, and Sidon. The two most important things that they traded were cedars of Lebanon and murex shells used to make purple dye. Their alphabet was very interesting. Good job!
