This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - The Phoenician Empire. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Phoenicians of the 11th century inhabited the region of modern Lebanon and Syria from about 3000 BC. They become the greatest traders and the best sailors and navigators of the pre-classical world. They are also the first people to establish a large colonial network based on seafaring, inherited from their maritime predecessors, the Minoans of Crete.
The most prosperous period for Phoenicia is the 10th century BC, when the surrounding region was stable. Hiram, the Phoenician king of Tyre, is an ally and business partner of Solomon, king of Israel.
From the 8th century BC many of the coastal cities of Phoenicia come under the control of a succession of imperial powers, each of them defeated and replaced in the region by the next - first the Assyrians, then the Babylonians, Persians and Macedonian Greeks. In 64 BC, the area becomes part of the Roman province of Syria.
The Phoenicians as an identifiable people fade from history, merging into the populations of the modern regions of Lebanon and northern Syria.
The presentation covers the following:
