Phoenician in Sardinia
The Phoenicians, a maritime civilization from the Middle East, established trading colonies in Sardinia, an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea. They introduced viticulture and olive cultivation to the island, which are still important economic activities today. One of your ancestors may have been a Phoenician trader who traveled between Sardinia and other Phoenician colonies in the Mediterranean. Another of your ancestors may have been a Phoenician farmer who cultivated vines and olives in Sardinia.
