Mysterious Sea Peoples Who Caused The Collapse Of The Bronze Age

Samuel Reason - January 3rd, 2020

The mysterious confederation of a seafaring civilization terrorized Egypt and the Mediterranean during the Bronze Age, they are largely thought to have caused the eventual collapse of the Bronze Age but even to this day their identity is unknown and most historians refer to them as the Sea Peoples.

This happened at a time that was over 2,000 years before the Vikings set sail from what we know as modern-day Scandinavia and plagued the whole of Europe. The great ancient empires of Egypt were in their heyday but even so, they faced a terrifying enemy that came from the sea – one that is nearly a complete mystery even to this day.

During 13th century B.C. inscriptions found in the ancient city of Tanis in Egypt stated: “They came from the sea in their warships and none could stand against them,” so it appears these Sea People were definitely part of a raiding culture and well trained in the art of warfare.

In modern history books, they are referred to as the Sea Peoples, as they are largely depicted for having extreme naval warriors who were able to wreak havoc on the whole of the Mediterranean sea. From writings, we know this happened during the time of 1400 B.C. and 1000 B.C. but their identity and origins are completely shrouded in mystery.

The Sea Peoples left no indication anywhere: no monuments or written records have ever been found – everything we know about them has been left from what can only be described as apocalyptic inscriptions left by the empires that battled them. This is mostly from the Ancient Egyptians as they inscribed and wrote down their history regularly. Modern historians theorize that they knew exactly where they came from based on how they describe the Sea Peoples. They believe that because it is never stated, it must have been so obvious that it didn’t need to be said, unfortunately, it looks like that information has been lost in history.

They are described as Northerners, so they could have come from Europe, modern Sicily or even Turkey. Some believe they may be the Philistines that have Biblical fame and did battle with ancient Israelites but that nobody knows where they came from. Or another theory is that they are Trojans who were completely displaced by the fall of the Trojan empire to the Greeks. Whatever the case, one thing is sure some natural or human disaster pushed them away from their own lands into raiding the richer lands of others.
