Phoenician in Sardinia
The Phoenicians also established trading colonies in Sardinia, an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea. They introduced writing, metallurgy, and other new technologies to the island. They also exploited the island’s natural resources, such as silver and lead. 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 artisan who worked with silver and lead in Sardinia.
