Currently reading 1177BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed. The Sea Peoples have longed been blamed for the collapse of the Bronze Age civilizations of the Eastern Mediterranean. Historians and archaeologists for decades have been trying to identify who these Sea Peoples, first discussed in Egyptian sources, were and where they came from. As one might expect the story is quite a bit more complex than the story of invaders from afar and the picture that is developing has gained much from continuing excavations as well as DNA analysis.
