The Phoenicians

This is the Phoenician's alphabet. As you can see, it resembles our alphabet we have today.

These were the Phoenician's trade routes. They traded with nearly everyone in the ancient world.

Along with the purple cloth, the Phoenicians also traded wood, glass, wine, and precious metals.

These are the Phoenician's colonies and where their civilizations were set up.They lived in modern day Lebanon and Syria. Their colonies were also along the coast of northern Egypt.

The Phoenician cities that were their main trading centers were Tyre, Sidon, Byblos, and Arwad.

This is what a Phoenician ship might look like.

Their name literally (not figuratively) means "the purple men."
