Fascinating analysis. Full of surprises. Great insight into population movements and reasons behind them.
Many linked to climate issues more than aggressive leaders.

HASH(0x8c3413a8) von 5 Sternen An excellent summary surrounding the mysterious group referred to as the Sea Peoples 1. April 2015
Von Petros Koutoupis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This Osprey volume provides the reader with the most up to date research surrounding the mysterious group commonly referred to as the Sea Peoples; a confederation of migrants that played an influential role during the Late Bronze Age period of the Eastern Mediterranean. Prior to the release of this publication, the de facto often cited research was that of N.K. Sandars’ 1985 title, “The Sea Peoples: Warriors of the Ancient Mediterranean 1250 - 1150 BC. The problem with this title is that despite being an excellent source for the topic in question, it is a bit outdated. In recent decades we have unearthed many new clues on this most volatile period of ancient history. This is where this recent title comes into the picture.

The authors of this latest research introduce the reader to the historical background of these Sea Peoples and the sources to which they derive. This is followed by the mostly inconclusive identification of each mentioned ethnic group or clan. The authors then highlight their appearances as it has been preserved in ancient artifacts and mostly Egyptian inscriptions. The rest focuses on their military tactics and exploits. Do not let the 60 pages fool you. It’s content is complete and to the point.

It needs to be noted that none of this research is new but instead produces a consolidated and near complete source of what we know of these intriguing peoples. What we do know is that at random points during the Late Bronze Age, waves of migrants spread throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. Some brought wives and children to resettle and start new lives away from what may have been a troubled home. While others were simply looking for work, possibly as soldiers or mercenaries for hire. There was also a third group commonly identified as pirates and attacking trading vessels as they traveled along the Anatolian coastline. The origin of these groups, their eventual destination, and the reason for their migration has yet to reveal itself. In time, the archaeology of the region may yield more clues.

HASH(0x8c307bf4) von 5 Sternen Glorious gaudy sea raiders and “armed emigrants” 1. März 2015
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a fascinating volume about the so-called “Sea Peoples” – the “Vikings” of their time and a mixed bunch of sea raiders who attacked the coasts of Asia Minor, the Levant and Egypt at the end of the Bronze Age. They are largely known to us through mostly Egyptian and, to a lesser extent, Hittite sources and sources from the Middle East seaboard.

As this title makes clear, they had various names which presumably corresponded to people of different origins although not very much is known about them. Numerous theories have been formulated regarding these origins, with these sea raiders coming from Sardinia, Sicily, Illyria, Crete, Cilicia and Cyprus while others being Achaeans from the Aegean and Greece. Various groups may have come from each and every of these locations and they sought to raid more prosperous areas to the south and east, in particular Egypt, Canaan and what is nowadays Lebanon and Syria.

As the title also mentions, but only in passing, there has – and still is – much debate among specialists of the period as to what caused these raids which turned into invasions, conquests and settlements. This is part of the wider issue about the “collapse” of the Bronze Age (over at least a couple of centuries), the end of the so-called palatial culture (in the Aegean) and the beginnings of the Iron Age. Here again, the authors skim over the issue, because discussing it at length and laying down all of the various theories is simply not the purpose of this title and there is simply not enough space to do the topic justice anyway.

What this title does offer you, however, is an overview of these Sea People and of some of their most well-known feats, whether attacks on the Hittites or on Egypt or service as mercenaries for Egypt. What it also does, is to present some rather gorgeous illustrations of some of these warriors drawn from various historical artefacts. Some of the plates, such as the one depicting the fall of the Hittite Empire, and the slaughtering of a Hittite officer, or the one showing Sherden and Peleset mercenaries slaughtering Libyan enemies of the Pharaoh that they serve for pay, are terribly realistic. Also interesting is the fact that, in a number of cases, the authors and artist have also taken the care to show the source of their inspiration among the illustrations.

Finally, there is a rather good bibliography. Admittedly, it is not comprehensive. It could hardly have been anyway since the full book might not have sufficed to list all the modern works. It does however include an interesting mix of mostly modern publications in French, Italian and English, including the relatively recent “The Philistine and Aegean Migration at the End of the Late Bronze Age” (2010) from Yasur-Landau which includes and discusses quite a bit of up to date material excavated from the diggings at some of the main Philistine cities on the coast in what is now Israël.

Four strong stars for a book that is certainly worth getting your hands on, both for the illustrations and as an introduction to the relatively little-known Sea-People. For me at least, this title has made me want to learn more about this troubled period and its mysterious raiders and invaders.

HASH(0x8c0aafd8) von 5 Sternen Very nice book of a little known subjet 9. Mai 2015
Von Horacio A. Galacho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Very nice book of a little known subjet. As historical essay it have a fundamental flaw: It don't have a map (Where is Cilicia??? for example) even it don't have a map of the Eastern Mediterranean in order to give a context or the Nile Delta. I can not blame the authors but the Editors, Osprey has more than fifty years of experience in editing books like this and (I assume) a wealth of library of illustrations than can help an author to get a good job.
The drawings explaining the armatures vests worn by the warriors and headgear are of rather unimaginative quality. I make votes for a new improved edition.

Von M.E.Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
All the Osprey books get high, high marks from me. This one covers an important time in history...the so-called Dark Ages in Greece and major expansions in sea-going around the Mediterranean. Wonderful illustrations and Dr. D'Amato writes well and with detailed understanding of the subject.

HASH(0x8c4d2738) von 5 Sternen Highly recommended, at least for non-specialists 26. November 2015
Von John W. Pierce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent survey of current knowledge about the Sea Peoples. I had hoped for a brief broad introduction to the subject area and current thinking about it, unhampered by minutiae and lengthy discussions of the merits of various theories. That's exactly what this is and I couldn't be more pleased. The author very succinctly presents the various theories about the various elements of the subject, but withholds commenting directly on the technical merits of those arguments beyond occasional remarks of a "... this seems likely..." or "... it seems more probable that..." nature, usually supported by a reason for the comment. The fact is that we simply do not *know* much at all about the Sea Peoples, and he makes that clear, while explaining why some possibilities *seem* to be better supported by the evidence than are others. The bibliography and index are both quite decent, especially for a book this size. While there will be little or nothing here for specialists in the field, I expect to find it quite useful as a reference for a long time, and I believe other amateurs will, also.
