The History Buff's Guide to Ibiza by Emily Kaufman

From Prehistoric Times to the Catalan Conquest

This first book by Emily Kaufman covers the entire history of Ibiza, from the island's first emergence as a result of the geological upheavals of the Jurassic period, she takes us through to the conquest of the island by the Catalans in 1235, essentially the start of modern times.

Beginning with the first inhabitants of the island, Emily Kaufman tells the story of human occupation of Ibiza and Formentera, taking in the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines and the high point of civilization with the Moorish occupation. A special section deals with the religious practices of the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, including a detailed investigation of such well-known deities as Bes, Baal-Hammon and Tanit.

All of this is described in the context of larger political events throughout the Mediterranean and beyond, the great events of the times which inevitably had an effect even on an island as remote as Ibiza was in times past.
