In the middle of the fifth century BCE, the Phoenicians, according to the Greek historian Herodotus, made trips to Britain for tin and, under orders from an Egyptian Pharaoh, circumnavigated Africa. Herodotus says that the Phoenicians claimed that, in order for them to make the trip around Africa, they had to stop, plant grain, wait for it to ripen, harvest it, and sail on. On a map, trace the route the Phoenicians would have taken to circumnavigate Africa and the route they would have followed to reach Britain.
