Abstract The history of Tartessos, the first great mining economy of Iberia, is also a story of prosperity-and ruin. This program makes extensive use of dramatizations, images of artifacts, footage of ruins, maps, and 3-D re-creations of ships and buildings to illustrate the skilled craft of metalwork, science of navigation, spread of overseas trade, intersection of cultures, development of written language, and use of currency as history unfolded during that remarkable epoch.
