Map of Phoenicia

Phoenicia was a civilization to the north of Canaan.[1] Phoenicia existed from 1200 BCE to 900BCE. People from Phoenicia had their own language called the Phoenician language, which is important to very many modern languages.[2] Phoenicians set up many colonies in the Mediterranean region and beyond.[3] Carthage was one of them.[3] Phoenician traders went as far as the British Isles to buy tin.[3] The Phoenicians were a major power in the Mediterranean as early as the 9th century BC.[3]
