From Antiquity to French Mandate

From the 16th until the end of the 13th centuries BCE the city of Ugarit (Ras Shamra) on the coast was the most important harbour of the Levant, trading with Egypt, Greece, Anatolia and Mesopotamia. Archaeologists have excavated remains of palaces, domestic complexes, temples and shrines, and – most importantly – libraries. Ugarit was sacked around 1200 BCE, probably by the infamous Sea Peoples, of whom not much is known.
