This class is conceived as an introduction to Phoenician-Punic Archeology and is divided into two parts.
The first part, corresponding to the lessons of the second period, is dedicated to the archeology of Lebanon from 1200 to 332 BC, the date of the conquest of Tyre by Alexander the Great. To facilitate the learning process of the participants, the lessons of the first part will follow the structure of the reference handbook (Sader 2019), illustrating and deepening the most important aspects.
The second part, corresponding to the lessons of the third period, is dedicated to the Phoenician presence in Sardinia from the first colonies to the Roman conquest of Carthaginian Sardinia. In this second part, students will be invited to study individual case studies individually, presenting them in class.
