Summary:The Phoenicians created the Mediterranean world as we know it, yet they remain a shadowy and poorly understood group. This handbook provides a current overview of the study of these ancient seafarers and craftsmen, bringing together all things Phoenician and Punic, from scholars from across Europe, North America, Australia, and the Mediterranean world. Summary studies on key historical moments (such as the history of Carthage), areas of culture (organized around language, religion, and material culture), regional studies and areas of contact (spanning from the Levant and the Aegean to Iberia and North Africa), and the reception of the Phoenicians as an idea, are included
