Overview

The mysterious Phoenicians and the ancient Mediterranean are experienced in richer detail than ever before in this well researched and intriguing narrative. Instead of seeing darkness in the years before classical Greece, we now see glimmers of light revealing a continuous parade of remarkable societies, great leaders and epic events. Drawing back the veil of secrecy surrounding the Phoenicians uncovers new glimpses of Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and people of other societies. Sanford Holst is one of the world's leading authorities on the Phoenicians, and appears in the BBC series Ancient Worlds. Elected a member of the prestigious Royal Historical Society for his work in this field, Holst has presented academic papers on the Phoenicians at universities around the world. Working with respected experts, often on-site, he has added photos, sources, and five years of additional research to his previous work. This is a walk through the idyllic ancient Mediterranean you will long remember.

    I enjoyed reading Phoenician Secrets, It is informative and an easy read. We learn that the Phoenician society was a secretive one which certainly explains our lack of understanding of their technology except when it is cast in stone or in the remains of wooden ships. The author provides the proof of their long voyages to foreign lands and their ability to navigate hundreds of miles at sea, This is certainly circumstantial evidence that they could determine their latitude (north- south position) quite accurately and possibly have been able to make a rough estimate of their longitude (east-west position). We learn that they were the premier navigators of the ancient world traveling from Byblos to ancient Britain and even circumnavigating the african continent.
    Since this book was written, evidence has been found which indicate their presence as far east as Okinawa in Japan. This book covers an interesting subject with many phoenician secrets yet to be revealed
