Today, Phoenicia is divided into Syria, Israel, and Lebanon. It was located in the Mediterranean. The Phoenicians lived on the coast and made a living from the ocean. They were good at building ships and could navigate too. One of the natural resources they had was snails from water that produced purple dye when boiled and processed. I think they were geographically lucky because they were traders that would sell things that would come from the ocean. Plus, they had barrier in the Mediterranean Sea and also barriers in the place that is now Lebanon. The barriers would protect them from enemies. And plus the fact they know how to make purple dye. Now Syria, Lebanon, and Israel has the land the Phoenicians had.
