A long debated theory that involved a Pre-Bonze Age race of “Raiders”, who operated much as later day Vikings and still later Pirates. The Sea People raided by ship and land much of Ancient Egypt and The Nile River. Well documented by The Egyptians from 1275 to 1000 B.C. - this Race of people are somewhat shrouded in mystery. Many claim that they were in fact Ancient Greeks, others possible Ancient African. They were quite effective at disrupting Egyptian sea Commerce. Their operations are possibly what caused many Pharaohs to expand and enhance The Ancient Egyptian Naval Forces. After their “mysterious” and sudden disappearance in the Region, “Sea People” type raids were reported in The Mediterranean Sea. Many felt that they either “returned home” or simply migrated to better “hunting grounds”.
