    Mysterious still to mainstream archaeologists, such as Stephanie Lynn Budin and Eliezer D. Oren, is why the bronze age mediterranean world was seemingly turned upside down beginning circa 1400 B.C., staying in turmoil for more than a few centuries thereafter, when whole cities were abandoned, after being plundered for their wealth, by marauders who were actually seeking food and water, or plunder, as they actually were responding to a catastrophic climate change and corresponding sea level rise which consumed all coastal port cities, when Atlantis, to the west, also went under, and the climate dried out, leaving for instance some 300 bronze age settlements in Greece abandoned at that time, settlements which were beside soon dried up streams, confirmed by Plato in his account in Timaeus in Critias.

    Some of the Sea People who migrated by armadas of ships at this time were the Philistines to the Levant, whom the egyptians called the Peleset, building the port of Pelusium on the northeastern corner of Egypt, part of the land overtaken by the Philistines (from canaanite tribes), who were myceanaean Cretans having come from the bronze age upper Adriatic greek civilization, demonstrated by researchers Budin and Oren with their archaeological work, noting the likeness of pottery and weaponry between the myceanaens of Greece and the philistines of the Levant, right down to those bronze shin-guards you see in the epic flicks.

    So before the port city Pelusium was built circa 1300 B.C., where was the port activity serving that region?  And before Alexandria was built as a major port city by Alexander the Great circa 350 B.C., what was the big port serving the Nile’s western outlet  into the mediterranean sea?  Well of course, the sea level had risen (submerging Menouthis and Heraklion) with the catastrophic climate change which had helped cause the disruption of whole civilizations, and along with the loss of all that real estate by sea level rise, the world was in chaos, prompting the panicked invasions of people into new lands, in search of food and water really, willing to fight for it, because streams and fields in their homeland had dried up, when the Ice Age ended.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the egyptain name Peleset derives from Peleg, known to the greeks as Pelasgus, leader of the most ancient of greeks, the Pelasgians, who were great navigators and builders, some of their work now submerged off Greece, for instance off Elafonisos, Abdera, Psathoura, Astakos, and Platygiali, so known there, how many more are there?  And off the Levant is submerged Yarmuta, which disappeared from the pages of history circa 1400 B.C. and nearby submerged old Sidon, both well known and photographed.

    Some of the Sea Peoples, no doubt, were Atlanteans, of the empire which Plato said stretched both outside and inside the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) to the Tyrrhenian Sea (Italy) and Libya.  Read on here under category Atlantis Revealed, to see that many submerged ruins in that part of the world too prove that the Ice Age ended much later than we are being led to believe, and what of the mysterious Great Pyramid of Giza?  See how the determination of its dimensions was the basis for the navigational skills of those ancients, by the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, simply explained, yet little known, in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
