Join us as we build our very own Phoenician fleet! This week we discover the rich history and culture of Phoenician trade. In this workshop, each student will craft a galley ship from wood complete with oarsmen and sails. We take time to build the port, townsmen, and various trading items. Together we dye cloth purple like the Tyrian purple, sculpt terracotta jars, and learn to navigate the stars as they did. The final day we put our boats to the test and assemble our Phoenician ports for all to see!
