Overview

Ancient historical cultures all over the world are of interest to modern day archaeologists. Archaeology by definition is the study of past human life as revealed by relics left by ancient peoples. Even though the cultures didn't leave any writings, pictographs, or ideologies of their past, we can sometimes find something that will bring them to life in other ways. Archaeologists like delving into history of past cultures, some of them do it for the prestige, some of them do it for their own past through their descendants and some of them do it for the collection of relics they can obtain.

The Phoenician Coin Mystery follows Jacy, an archaeologist who is investigating the Chaco Canyon Grid, and whose discoveries lead to an interesting exploration into the culture of the Phoenicians, whose way of life remains a mystery to this day.

About the Author

Winona D. Sharp was born in Laconia, New Hampshire, but was raised in Arizona. She currently resides in Tombstone, Arizona.

After discovering that her mother served as a cryptographer for the military during the Korean War, the author had an interest in the study of, and the cracking of codes. Looking through a dictionary, she stumbled upon Phoenician abjad and used to try to write sentences and words to decipher. Pairing this along with her interest in archaeology, geology, and a love of Native Americans and their history, the author sat down to write this book.
The author would like to thank her husband, Donald, for his unending support of every endeavor she chooses to explore. She would also like to thank Mr. Salim George Khalaf, a Byzantine/Phoenician descendant, and the CEO of the Phoenician International Research Center, as well as www.phoenicia.org.
In her leisure, the author enjoys rock hounding, photography, designing board games, and of course, reading.
