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.
