      IELTS READING TEST SET 12 AC. The Phoenicians: an almost forgotten people. The Phoenicians inhabited the region of modern Lebanon and Syria from about BC. They became the greatest traders of the pre-classical world, and were the first people to establish a large colonial network. Phoenicians were revered as great mariners by their contemporaries. They are believed to have been the first Mediterranean culture to reach Britain. According to tales reported by the ancient Greek historian, Herodotus, a Phoenician fleet—commissioned by the Egyptian King Necho II—circumnavigated Africa around BCE; but Herodotus did not.

    In Search of the Phoenicians takes the reader on an exhilarating quest to reveal more about these enigmatic people. Using a dazzling array of evidence, this engaging book investigates the construction of identities by and for the Phoenicians from the Middle East to Ireland, from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity and beyond.   In fact, the Phoenicians are the first known people to use an alphabet. Their writing system had 22 letters, which were all consonants. The reader had to guess at the vowels the author meant to use. One Phoenician city, Byblos, is thought to have been a major center for writing, because the city's name is the origin of the word "book"!

    Although many Greek, Roman, and Egyptian writers reference the Phoenicians in trade records, military battles, and artistic transactions, few records were left by the original Phoenicians themselves, leaving modern scholars to fill in the blanks through educated guesses and material culture. The ancient perception about this civilization was mixed. A revised and updated version of a book on the Phoenicians first published in A Short History Of The Phoenicians.
