Trade between humans has been common place since prehistoric times. Trading was the main facility of prehistoric people, who bartered goods and services from each other before the creation of modern-day currency. Archaeological excavations provide numerous examples of humans engaging in trade with some ancient trade routes still being used today. We can see these examples within ancient civilisations such as the Phoenicians and the Romans. The Phoenicians, believed to have originated in Lebanon, were pioneers in long distance commercial trading between 1200 – 800 BC. Their command over naval trade spread its influence throughout the world, with hoards of decorated silver being found in North Africa and Europe.

Whether you prescribe to the latest school of thought that the world is flat and only likely to become more so on account of globalization or, conversely, believe in the more classic theory that isolationism and politically-driven trade agreements will rule the day, one thing is for sure: time and tide wait for no man.
