I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.


Rome is called the “Eternal City” but do you know the oldest city in recorded history?  It is Byblos which is in present-day Lebanon.  It holds the record for the oldest populated city dating back to 5000 BC. 


Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Everyone likes to clainm being the oldest city James.  There are probably 20 others that have the documentation to prove their positions as well.  Lebanon is certainly in the proper location as a contender though.

Hi James.  You would think after 5000 years they would get it right.
