  2. Trade at Ugarit In the 13th Century BCE, by Farras Abdelnour, an electrical engineer of Near Eastern origin with a strong interest in the Ancient Near East. Take a look at his other pages of ancient wisdom.
  3. A Story of Carthage, the famous Punic city on the coast of North Africa pounded to dust by the Romans. From a Japanese fan of things Punic. Lacks textual detail but includes many interesting photos.
  4. Shalom - Exploring the Ancient Near East

    The Berbers are related to the Phoenicians in two ways. First, linguistically, since the Berber and Phoenician are from different branches of the "Hammo-Semitic" Language Family; other branches include Egyptian (now defunct), Ethiopic, Hebrew, and Arabic. Second, the Phoenicians colonized North Africa where the Berbers live, so in numerous places there was an intermingling of people and culture. Currently Berber language and culture are being suppressed in some places in North Africa.
