I’ve compiled a reading list of my favourite history books via the Amazon influencer program. If you do choose to purchase any of these incredible sources of information then Amazon will send me a tiny fraction of the earnings (as long as you do it through the link) (this means more and better content in the future) I’ll keep adding to and updating the list as time goes on:-

  1. Alright then guys. Months of effort on this one. Nearly broke me. Glad to have it finally out there. Who do you think the Sea Peoples were? Let me know what you think in the comments! Don't forget to like, subscribe, comment etc and why not share with a like minded friend. Where would you like to see me go and film next once it's a bit easier to travel? Thanks for watching and see you next time

  2. There is a lot of evidence that meteor/comet impacts around 1200 bc, 1650 bc and 2350 bc in the Middle East were the cause of dramatic disaster and climate change and the subsequent collapse of civilizations. The Al Amarah crater in Iraq, 10 miles north east of the Tigris Euphrates confluence, may have be one of these. The sea people were the result of the collapse.

  3. Thank you for this documentary. I'd always wondered if the common people in some of those cities hadn't finally had a belly full and revolted, and add starvation due to crop failures in the mix they would have been past caring if they got killed.

  4. Pete Kelly, this is such a fantastic documentary. I mean, all of your content is incredible, but this one just floored me. I'm on my third re-watch of this, and each time it's like I'm watching it for the first time. Your voice, your presentation and navigation over this history is bar none the best out there. I'm at a loss for words really. I hope you never stop, and will do my best to contribute to your work in the near future.

    Your 98% like rate on over 320K views to this video so far is a testament to your great work.

    Thank you ever so much.

  5. The sea people's to me seem almost like the Carthaginians and Phoenicians of their day as the counterpart to their more militant neighbors, the result of the spread of the influence of the beaker folk across northern and western Europe. A group which when tensions rise and resources dwindled would use their wealth to unite the disparate fringes.

  6. Hmmm.. Sounds familiar… Bands of different people conspiring together to take down the, then superpower.. Ancient Antifa & BLM anybody??? Ancient BLM & Hebrew Israelites claiming Egyptians were Black!!!!

  7. I reckon a lot of folks have got this all wrong and the so called sea people's weren't responsible for a lot of the mayhem but the byproduct of a lot of the mayhem. Mayhem all more than likely kicked off by years of wars between Greeks and Hittites along the Anatolian coast. The amount of time it took to take Troy is totally unrealistic and probably related more to a time of war not siege of a city.

  8. No You are spekolating to much and cutting of storys, to fit a nerativ, You hav to understand that it was not only humans, in around Egypt, people has always been aipel to move around, to think that any one just build a force Egypt and forget about the rest of the world, gives You nothing, it is just rempaling up and up againe the same, the seapeople was not from medetarinian, thay wehent Ther from other places, this docmontery is pointles,

  9. I love this subject and this is by far the best collection , what sources do you recommend- also sucks you didn’t get in on the multiple youtuber sea people’s group video project from like a year ago- you would of made them look terrible
