Ras Shamra

Ras Shamra
The modern name for the ancient Ugarit on the coast of Syria and the scene of excavations since 1928. Five phases have been identified, of which material from the Late Bronze Age (1500–1200 BCE) with cuneiform texts is especially interesting. Those with an alphabetic script are in Ugarit, a language akin to Hebrew, and include literary myths and legends not unlike some of the stories in the OT.
