The Phoenicians

£19.99

Product description

Published in 2001 by I B Tauris. An illustrated handbook to the Phoenician World edited by Sabatino Moscati. Illustrated with numerous black & white and colour illustrations.

A comprehensive work on the complexities and wonders of this fascinating culture, illustrated throughout in black and white and colour. The Phoenician civilisation reached its peak around 1000 BC and its colonies stretched from the eastern coast of the Mediterranean to Spain.

The ancient Phoenician civilisation, which thrived in the Mediterranean region in around 1000 BC, is still shrouded in mystery. Its people left few written records, but they are known to have been expert navigators and some of the greatest traders in history - skills which brought them riches that were legendary. Excavations have yielded skillfully crafted objects of gold and silver and countless other treasure, all examples of an advanced culture. This detailed study reveals the history, culture, craft and identity of the Phoenicians.

The cover has only slight shelf wear at the top of the spine, and has flaps both front and back. The text pages are clean and tight. In almost as new condition.
