Book Description

Around the 13th century BC, Egypt was attacked 2 times by the same enemy. The scale of these attacks was unprecedented and took place during the reign of Pharaoh Merneptah and later under that of Ramessess III. These attacks were the work of the mysterious "Sea Peoples" as the Egyptians called them.

Who were these mysterious Sea Peoples who tried to invade (and almost succeeded) the powerful Egypt around the 13th century BC? Only the Egyptian Annals mention these invaders because the Egyptians were the only ones who managed to defeat them. Indeed, the other major civilizations of that time were destroyed: Greece, Crete, Ugarit, Phoenica, Canaan, Syria...

Who were they? Where were they from? Why did they attack Egypt?

Egyptologists describe them as a coalition of various people originating from Europe, but a thorough reading of the ancient Egyptian texts provides us with a major surprise: the largest component of this coalition is made of... North Africans! Even the leader of this coalition is a Berber from North Africa called Meriai (a name still used today among the Tuaregs of the Sahara).

Why were there so many North Africans in this army yet they were supposed to be of European origin? Why did a North African king lead them? This book is based on a new objective reading of old Egyptian texts with some prominent Egyptologists giving critical analysis on the subject. The findings in this book give you all the answers to these questions.

The author notes that most of the Sea Peoples come from "Berberia". This is a vast region situated West of Egypt and inhabited by the Berbers. The latter had to escape the desertification of the Sahara… that is why they fled in search of new lands to settle in, and Egypt was near and rich...

This is a new reading of these invasions that changed the Ancient World for good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible September 12, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writing is in imperfect English, perhaps by people who labor with the language. The thesis seems to be how hieroglypics explain what happened in Egypt with external migrations. However, due to the poor writing and lack of tie-in with archaeological proofs, this book would be better summarized with a two page executive summary, or simply skipped altogether.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read and food for thought November 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An inquring, objective, open mind NEVER skips anything...not if they are after the knowledge and the truth! This book is profusely illustrated, many of which are in high resolution; allowing significant enlargement to see small details, with hieroglyphs, artifacts, etc. And even though the flow of the book's writing is sometimes different from my own style it is, by no means, diffucult to read or hard to understand. Learn to read the hieroglyphs and read the text for yourself that the book presents. By the way, the hieroglyphs are archeological proof, as far as they can be taken as most of the glyphs are from royal tombs and likely, just like today, biased themselves for various subjective, and/or religious and/or political rational.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting November 25, 2012

I find the topic fascinating and very interesting to read. This gives a new light on the origin of the
Sea Peoples and the arguments put forward by the authors are rather persuasive.
The writing style of the book is simple but comprehensive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to Read July 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While this book contains some interesting data and insights to the early history of the Mediterranean area, the prose is difficult to read and follow. The title doesn't seem to represent the entire story either as many things and facts (?) are discussed throughout superficially.

More About the Author

Bob Idjennaden is a Belgian living on this beautiful island that is Ireland for many years now. He is curious about many things but it is in the field of ancient history that his passion is the strongest and is now pushing him to write.

Although this young man is part North African and a history buff, it took the reading of a book on the archaeology of the Tassili N'Ajjer (plateau of Southern Algeria) to trigger an interest on the ancient history of Africa. Written by M. Hachid, it suggested that many great civilizations have existed on this continent and that The Sahara was not always the desert that we all know.

Bob is passionate about anything written about the ancient civilisations of Africa, including the Kingdom of Numidia, the Garamantes, the Maures, the Gaetulians... and this led him to meeting many experts on these civilizations.

After one such meeting, he decided to organize a lecture on the African civilization of Numidia, which was held in Brussels, Belgium in 2011. It was the first time this topic had been addressed in that country and was met with such success and enthusiasm that Bob decided to start writing on the subject to reach a wider audience.

Other books on civilizations which have now disappeared will follow soon!
