In this wonderful episode by The History of the World Podcast we explore briefly the aftermath of the Late Bronze Age Collapse and the appearance of the Phoenicians in Ancient Canaan.
We watch as the Phoenicians rise and fall as they set up a series of colonies along with their ancient Greek rivals across the known world of their era.
As they become established overseas we finally begin to see their disappearance in the Levant under the expansion of the mighty Achaemenid Persian Empire.
But, the beauty is that the story doesn't end there, but continues with the rise, expansion and eventual collapse of Ancient Carthage.
This episode touches on a variety of subjects from economics, politics and conflicts truly capturing the listener in an epic tale from ancient history.
