chapter  11
PHOENICIAN AND PUNIC CITIES
Pages 14

The Phoenicians were the Iron Age successors of the Bronze Age Canaanites, such as the Ugaritians examined in Chapter 9, continuing earlier cultural traditions without a break. Indeed, they called themselves Canaanites and their land Canaan. Thus, our modern division between Bronze Age Canaanities and Iron Age Phoenicians, separated at 1200 BC, is artificial.
