The Phoenicians Travelled to Britain

Source: The Phoenicians (1500–300 B.C.) | Essay | The Metropolitan Museum of Art | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History (Met Museum) 2004 A.D. From the source, "By the late eighth century B.C., the Phoenicians, alongside the Greeks, had founded trading posts around the entire Mediterranean and excavations of many of these centers have added significantly to our understanding of Phoenician culture. Sea traders from Phoenicia and Carthage (a Phoenician colony traditionally founded in 814 B.C.) even ventured beyond the Strait of Gibraltar as far as Britain in search of tin. However, much of our knowledge about the Phoenicians during the…

Source: Nigeria Virtual Jewish History Tour (Jewish Virtual Library) 2020 A.D. From the source, "According to oral traditions, the Ibo have resided in “Iboland,” a region of modern-day Nigeria, for over 1500 years. Before that, the tradition asserts that they were migrants from ancient Israel. There exist a number of theories that explain from whom the Ibo are descendant, and how they came to reside in Nigeria. One theory contends that the Ibo are the descendants of one of the lost tribes. Ibo Jews The Ibo of Benei Gath are said to have descended from Gath (Gad), the eighth son of Jacob. The…

Female Leaders Potentially were Involved in Ancient Near East Warfare

Female Leaders Potentially were Involved in Ancient Near East Warfare

Source: Warlike men and invisible women: how scribes in the Ancient Near East represented warfare (Open Edition Journals) 2021 A.D. From the source, "The analysis of women’s place in wars in the Ancient Near East is determined to a great extent by the fact that there was no law of war. However, some laws existed to allow wives to remarry, if their husbands were made prisoners of war or were considered to have disappeared. Thus, one must turn to the practice of war, as described by scribes, to find more elements concerning women. The queens of Assyria, such as Sammuramat…

Source: Tacitus (Jewish Virtual Library) 2021 A.D. From the source, "He gives a bizarre picture of Jewish national and religious origins (Histories 5:2–5), though in referring to traditions which variously make the first Jews Cretan, Egyptian, Ethiopian, or Assyrian exiles, or the nation of the Solymi celebrated by Homer, he is not wholly inaccurate, since the theory of Assyrian origin may fit with the biblical account of Abraham's wanderings from Chaldea. Nor is his account wholly unfavorable, since the Romans, whose own origins were questionable (see the preface to Livy's History), admired and envied peoples who had ancient origins. Tacitus agrees with…

The “Physiognomy” of the Captives on the Lachish Reliefs is Undoubtedly “Jewish”

Source: Life and Death: Social Perspectives on Biblical Bodies (Bloomsbury Publishing) 2021 A.D. Note: Page 6 of the source. This source confirms that many who reject Israelites being depicted on the Assyrian Lachish reliefs are viewing them from a Western point of view that ancient Israelites resemble the "stereotypical" Middle Eastern people. The captives, who we can argue are indeed Judeans, depicted on the Lachish reliefs have 'curly hair and bulbous noses' which can be attributed as being 'Kushite' Nubian features.
