However, by that time the site had already seen more than 6,000 years of occupation, and the data from Ras Shamra - Ugarit thus have become important as a reference point for the early history of the Near East along the Levantine coast and the eastern Mediterranean.".
"In this volume, Marguerite Yon, the principal investigator since the early 1970s on behalf of the French archaeological team, brings us up to date on the 70-year-long excavation of the site. During the past 25 years, much of our understanding of the site itself has changed, due to new excavations, reexcavation, and reinterpretation of prior excavations. This volume is the authoritative latest word on the data from the site and their meaning for our understanding of the importance of ancient Ugarit."--BOOK JACKET.
