After spending the summer in Minnesota, we have returned to Texas. Three chapters have been drafted and edited(Chapters Ten, Eleven, and Twelve). Chapter Eleven suggests how Egyptians vis-a-vis the Phoenicians and Carthaginians carried elements of Egyptian/Canaanite cultural elements in the western Mediterranean world. They also carried some adopted Greek cultural elements including the alphabet, which evolved into various forms including Greek and Latin. Moreover, the Carthaginians had a great influence on the Etruscans and the Etruscan-Greek kings came to serve and the last dynasty of the kings of Rome bringing them into the international seagoing trading system that the Carthaginians had mastered well prior to the Roman Empire.
