Ugarit

Ugarit is one of the few Bronze Age sites in the Middle East which offers  identifiable  remains to the  casual visitor and not simply to the specialist.  It has been described as "probably the first great international port in history".

From this site in ancient times, a good deal of the Eastern Mediterranean's trade with Mesopotamia was conducted ; and much of the later Phoenician commercial and cultural expansion took its inspiration, not least through the development of the alphabet.
