We invite you to join our “Friends of Tyre” network where you will be able to access a wealth of knowledge about the greatest maritime trading civilization of the ancient world the Phoenicians and their city state Tyre, legendary birthplace of Europa and Dido.
We are born to speak it, we are taught to read it and we are taught to write it but we often forget who to thank for it.
The Phoenician alphabet is the foundation of ours today. The great Herodotus, father of history, wrote that it is from the shores of Tyre that this alphabet spread throughout the Mediterranean. It is undoubtedly the most significant contribution by the Phoenician civilization, an invention that changed the human story.
Today, it is our turn to make a contribution!
Safeguarding the history of humankind is everyone’s responsibility.
You can make a difference.
