The Phoenicians and the West : Politics, Colonies and Trade, Paperback / softback Book

The Phoenicians and the West : Politics, Colonies and Trade Paperback / softback

Description

Between the eighth and sixth centuries BC, the Phoenicians established the first trading system in the Mediterranean basin, from their homeland, in what is now Lebanon, to colonies in Cyprus, Tunisia, Sicily, Sardinia and southern Spain.

The Phoenician state was able to maintain its independence, despite the territorial expansion of the Assyrians, in return for tribute provided by its western colonies.

Archaeological research over the past decades, and still ongoing, has transformed our understanding of these colonies and their relationship to local communities.

This updated version of Maria Eugenia Aubet's highly praised book, The Phoenicians and the West, originally published in English in 1993, incorporates more recent research findings, an expanded bibliography, and an appendix on radiometric dating.

It will be welcomed by scholars and students of Mediterranean history and archaeology, and anyone interested in early trading systems.
