From about 1500 BC to 1200 BC, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex cosmopolitan and globalized world-system. It may have been this very internationalism that contributed to the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age. When the end came, the civilized and international world of the Mediterranean regions came to a dramatic halt in a vast area stretching from Greece and Italy in the west to Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia in the east. Large empires and small kingdoms collapsed rapidly. With their end came the world’s first recorded Dark Ages. It was not until centuries later that a new cultural renaissance emerged in Greece and the other affected areas, setting the stage for the evolution of Western society as we know it today. Professor Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University will explore why the Bronze Age came to an end and whether the collapse of those ancient civilizations might hold some warnings for our current society.
Considered for a Pulitzer Prize for his recent book 1177 BC, Dr. Eric H. Cline is Professor of Classics and Anthropology and the current Director of the Capitol Archaeological Institute at The George Washington University. He is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fulbright scholar, an NEH Public Scholar, and an award-winning teacher and author. He has degrees in archaeology and ancient history from Dartmouth, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania; in May 2015, he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree (honoris causa) from Muhlenberg College. Dr. Cline is an active field archaeologist with 30 seasons of excavation and survey experience.

Great presentation.. concluding with an interesting Q&A.. I guess you‘re not suggesting that we‘re on the brink of another dark age given the similarities of then and now.. but the world is changing and fast thanks in part to the latest wave of ‚sea peoples’ or rather disruptive technology promising superior services at the expense of making older practices and institutions obsolete.. hopefully in the long run for the betterment of our civilsation.

The invasion of dorieus known in Greek as κάθοδος των Δωριέων was a theory that around 1200 bc some harder tribes came down to Greece and settle here maybe link some info,also the eruption of volcano in thira could force the people to leave not going straight to tsunami but going as a normal person do to the opposite site which means south to Crete which is Egypt/Cyprus/Syria.

You have ignored the Iranian civilization , Indian and Chinese civilizations and say that in 1177 B.C the world collapsed by some SEA PEOPLE from some islands in White sea . The most advanced places in the world were in India and Iran . What the hell are you talking about ? You must be high or ignorant and puking out nonsense . Then , you give credence to Egyptologists , the very same crowd that have purposely kept Humanity in dark by telling lies over and over again . Acting like a Mafia organizations . Please , take a back seat and tell your wife that the Trojan war indeed happened .

This is an excellent lecture, but the temptation to somehow arrive at some lesion which relates to our current time did spoil it a bit. There is no doubt there are pressures on our current global civilization, but if we are going down the same path as the Bronze Age “golden” age, we are well off the end point. However I must admit we can be said to be on that path. However if we drill down further the effect described here which precluded a rebuilding is a revolt caused by famine. Natural disasters, except a failure in crops, can all be recovered from. When the population cannot be fed they may be tempted to revolt, which makes a bad situation worse, thus there is no rebuilding. Even if there is just a crop failure, the population can arm itself and invade their neighbour, which must have occurred until all the targets were devastated. To compound this, a successful centrally managed economy can be very efficient, which will result in population to grow. When the crops fail and everyone else has the same problem, the result is a large population which is starving. That would compound the issue, possible the less civilised parts of the Mediterranean did not suffer such a fall, because they were never that advanced or populated. This is the path we are on, rapidly increasing population means any major ecological change could have a compounding effect which could cause a systems failure. That would be the lesson to learn from this. However I am more interested in what happened during that period than to somehow directly relate it to our time. There is still so much we do not know.

After watching this lecture I'm fairly suspicious that the documented climate change might have come about in marginal areas by the spread of iron tool technology. While it's clear at this time bronze required long distance imports, where the knowledge existed to use it iron ore is fairly common, and it makes cheaper and better tools than bronze. Marginal areas like the Mediterranean on eastwards towards the Indus Valley Civilization might have experienced deforestation at this time because everybody now had a cheap ax and a machete. Saws were probably almost unknown before iron, and common afterwards. You can see that in the documentation he read about ship traffic. Someone has a LOT better carpentry tools than they used to. Certainly the spread of cheap iron weapons would have had the same destabilizing effect on populations that the spread of automatic weapons into the modern Horn of Africa has now. After iron not only were axes and swords better than ever before, but everybody had one of each. No wonder civilization collapsed.

Very interesting presentation, thank you for sharing. The final theories on analogy with our modern age, I find far-fetched. Yes, we are moving towards a decline/destruction of cultures, but the drivers are totally different and the pace of impact: draughts and famines can be handled easier through technology and trade for those who have them available (and are in power) and weapons have reached an extent of destructive power so that the outcome of wars is pretty much decided before they start. There is no such thing anymore as obliteration of nations, cultures. What happens is a globalist take-over of local resources with or without bloody wars, that leads to modern colonization and slavery, which is basically a leveraging of resources to the already more powerful side. Cultures disappear globally, but in a "soft" way: they all become Coca-Cola/iPhone consuming masses where cultural identity diminishes to a few tourist souvenirs. In that sense, cultures "disappear", but in a covert way and hardly because of cataclismic events in the likes of the era in the presentation, that basically wiped out civilizations in no time. While I agree that there is no linear process of events and the presentation rightfully concludes that it is a complex whole of the parts that led to those events, the complexity of these changes in our modern age comes from the intertwined socio-economic system that influences our planet's resources, mainly the use of fossil fuels that may fuel an accelerated greenhouse effect and as a result, global food shortages. The globalized world however implies that local issues (such as draughts and famine) may be mitigated on a global scale and the ruling classes can defend easier against these (otherwise catastrophic) events and tendencies than the poor regions. This is not future music: look at the state most of Africa is in right now, which is nothing more than a resource used by the rich, to feed the rich. The modern colonists (=global corporations) however very much mind that the human resources that keep this machinery alive (=the local populace, the modern slaves) are very much intact in numbers and are led to believe that their quality of life is in fact improving. At the end, there are winning sides and loosing sides, but the difference with the events 3000 years ago is that now, there is no wipe of nations and population numbers, but a transition from cultural indentity to consumer and slave.

The Shekelesh are obviously the Jews and looking at the queen's morphology, Punt definitely refers to America, proving the Egyptians already back then crossed the Atlantic. Today we see the Sea Peoples causing the Collapse of European civilization, maybe Punt and Shekelesh are behind this event too? - Anyway, a very interesting lecture and I think the period we're living in and started with the Bronze Age Collapse is now coming to an end with the Collapse of the Monotheistic World Order, triggered by climate change, overpopulation, rebellion against the Elites etc.

Another hypothesis of history that is maybe spot on, maybe partially right, maybe totally off base. This only serves to show us we know nothing. We only speculate. We put the bits and pieces of archeological data that we find and assemble them together based on our own cultural influences and the knowledge we have at the time and then form a theory. Then we make these theories and interpretations of history as did the peoples that wrote/told the stories and drew the pictures or carved the art. It is always good to have a theory, but one can never be sure it is correct. The only thing we do know is that the theory will change. We only have the written histories (were they telling the truth?), sometimes artifacts, and some current scientific knowns. We only make educated guesses and change or theories when we get other data or a different culture decides on a different theory. But what I do like is that this man is willing to admit that events might have been much more complex and not always linear like we want history to be. The victor or survivor writes the history. Things are never as simple as we think.

it seems a shame to me that it took so long to collapse and rebuild. all the hallmarks of what happens today on the stock market. old established industries fade away and are replaced by newer more capital efficient ones. perhaps what was lacking is an overall picture. I dont think natural disasters are enough to cause a system wide collapse over that time frame. I suspect that economic rebellion is a better cause when people realise they can do better alone than they could do being part of an established empire. But we can only go with the evidence.

ok sorry no but the phoenicians didnt just pop up out of nowhere after the canaanites. thats not how any of this works. the trappings were laid far before, meaning they already had some kind of government/tribe/military/society or other kind of civic institution. the phoenicians literally ARE the sea peoples, they probably separated FROM canaan over time

+Loki Hopkins right, and every new technology or iteration of technology requires lots of cooperative labor. think assembly line cars, bay area tech, manhattan project, american aircraft carriers, etc. in those times, these collaborative efforts were catalyzed by rulers of civilizations. tribal societies were historically incapable of building navies because they lacked the strong rulers necessary to unite various factions
Loki Hopkins
Loki Hopkins Hace 22 días
​+Michael Sanchez pretty much the only form of war during this period was land based, with chariots being the predominant military unit at the time. The effect of this is that the nations in the mediterranean were completely unprepared for the naval assaults, as they had never really had naval wars until this point, it's like attacking the US with a cyber assault, as they are not prepared for it (Iran actually did this: time.com/4270728/iran-cyber-attack-dam-fbi/)

+Loki Hopkins again, i just dont buy it. there were multiple civilizations at the time encompassing the entire region and building fleets takes a tremendous amount of labor and resources. I don't see a bunch of scattered tribes building fleets large enough to topple civilizations. any such acconplishments would require concerted efforts. its like thinking china can take over the US just because they have more people without considering they dont have the resources and technology to actually do it
Loki Hopkins
Loki Hopkins Hace 23 días
+Michael Sanchez if you read the last part of my comment i said "The Phoenicians may have been some of the sea people, but they wouldn't have been all of them." alluding to the theory that rather than being a single united people, the sea people were a wide assortment of tribes and city states who were displaced during the sudden warm and arid weather at this time. These could include the Phoenicians, the tribe I was talking about, and many others, all being drawn to the sea during those times of failing crops and little water. To compare this to Somalia, the fishermen who became pirates were one particular group in the northern areas of Somalia, but as times got worse and the practice got more accepted, more Somalians from different ethnic groups would go on to become pirates.
Michael Sanchez
Michael Sanchez Hace 23 días
+Loki Hopkins one tribe cant crush the entire western civilized world. I find such a story unlikely. the oldest city in the world was under the control of the phoenicians and cities had infrastructure and labor to build fleets. I don't see how a tribe would do that

That was excellent except for the last part where he mentioned democracy and monotheism and said that 'We would not be here today, doing what we do, if these guys had not collapsed'. What, if these events hadn't happened the Egyptians and Hittites and Canaanites and Myceneans would have maintained their topdown control and polytheism forever? There would be no democracy and the Americas would have remained inhabited by Stone Age peoples often engaged in brutal warfare with each other?

This is amazing. 'been doing some research in both history and culture over this period. The translation from writing to myth-passing he quickly explicits (but largely implies, even unwillingly), if put in perspective with things like Nietzsche's genealogy of morals or Jung's collective unconscious and historical esotericism... it gives a sense of how deeply our mind's framework seems to be connected to our civilizations'. being able to get this intuitive knowledge encouraged by such a wide connection of vastly diverse research fields, each one putting the other's conclusions at test, and being able to share it with 3M people that stand just as both puzzled and inspired as I feel right now... how blessed can a period be?

New Ice-age threatening north while Golf-stream weakening, It will cause famine and migration to south increasing those cataclysms known under exodus from Egypt and familiar in Revelations as well. Those 7 years fat and famine while Joseph ruled in Egypt might have happened around 1600 BC and 400 years later exodus, Moses and Joshua, the wasps having done some job among other pestilences (Good's dooms) to Canaanites and giants there according Bible.

Santorini and Thera might have happened around the 7 fat and 7 slim years(famine) in Egypt when Joseph was ruling. 1600 BC , 400 years after that Moses and exodus and Joshua moved to Israel. 1200 BC about. Nowadays when Golf-stream is weakening away, new ice-age might occur in north causing famine, migration south and some cataclysms appearing as well.
maija-liisa Piittari
When God is forgotten, dooms arise. In Germany late 1800:s christian faith slowly turned weak and namely. 1930 national socialism took place as doom. So it will be with every nation in turn when God forsaken. 1200 BC , Joshua's Days it was amorites, canaanites to be destroyed and God sent those days phoiniceans (philisteans?) to the shore (Gaza, Ashdod) to be as punishment to Israel when sinning. Nothing new under sun, or?

Ummm....so close....if you would have only read the Egyptian and Greek Scripts. We now know what caused all of the destruction to the pyramids, Karnak, and trashed most of Europe and Asia. The alarming part is WHEN and WHAT caused it. Just a mere 3,200 years ago (1,200 BC), every civilization was hit with total devastation that cause the collapse of Egypt, Greece, Hittites and dozens of other cultures that resulted in a 300 year dark age. The shocker comes from Greek and Egyptian "Mythology" coming to life. The entire globe, as is stated by Homer and the Egyptian scripts, suffered the "Thunderbolts of Zeus". The entire planet was bombarded with a hundred years of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic explosions and plasma discharge from the close proximity of Jupiter. This would explain the burying of monuments , observatories and also explain all of the underground cities found in Turkey. It is a time that also lines up with the Bible and the story of Moses. The Egyptians go into full detail about the millions of bodies across Libya and Egypt that cooled from the inside, out and they just threw many of the bodies into the Nile, thus turning the Nile to blood. You really have to real the accounts for yourself. It was a horrifying fight for survival across the entire spam from Northern Africa, to Southeast Asia and even as far as the North Sea. Mainstream Science claims that all of the damage was cause by the "Sea People". Are you kidding me? 70% of life was not wiped out by seven ships of nomads, sorry.

The True People of God ''EL'' are The Philistines/Ellines originated from El-las/Greece (Myceneans,Spartans) and The Philistines/People Of The Sea (people with thalassaemia/blue) are THE LINK THAT CONNECTS ALL RACES AND ALL COLORS and that's why the Vatican,Orthodox Church,United Nations,Royals/Usurpers,Nazis,USA and every other Judaic PORPHYRIC/VAMPIRIC/RED scum ARE GENOCIDING ALL NATIVES/INDIGENOUS/ORIGINALS allover the world !!Look at Palestine,Ellas/Greece,Baskonia,Armenia,Canaan,look at Africa,look at ALL the Nations that the psychopathic zionazi Bush/Crowley ''family'' genocides for decades,look at the true American Natives ,look at the Australian Originals ,look at India,look at China ,Korea and Russia and now look at all the European Natives !!The Porphyrics/Vampirics are killing the people EVERYWHERE !!Open your eyes people !! Israel IS PORPHYRIC/VAMPIRIC and so is the Christian Church and The Rothschilds and Rockefellers are the same vampires (Porphyria in their blood) !!THE SEA WAS ALWAYS HERE...YOU WERE NOT !!

Thalassaemia in the blood is what connected the Royals of these people.....they were the Philistines/People of The Sea and NOT of Judaic Porphyric/Vampiric origin.And even today we are still being genocided by the Vampiric/Porphyric jews ,the Vatican,the orthodox church,usa,israel etc. etc. we are talking about genetic genocide without any reason!

Heres is my assignment: Take either outline, mind map, or cornell style notes on the lecture from Dr Eric Cline. This is a standard college lecture and what you will get 2 or 3 times a week in one college class. The notes weill recieve a 5 for incomplete notes, a 8 for notes that cover most of the lecture, or a 10 for quality notes that explore the lecture. After you notes write an Intro paragraph on the causes of the Bronze age collapse. This should be 2 or 3 sentences, with the last being your Thesis sentence. 5 points will be awarded for a poorly constructed intro, 8 for an intro that attempts to introduce the topic but is confusing, and a 10 for a well constructed Intro paragraph with a strong Thesis Sentence. An example if I was writing about the Collapse of Rome woule be: While history has seen many great empires emerge, few can compare to the glory and granduer that was the Roman Empire. Despite all of its power though, Rome's empire collapsed like so many before it. The ultimate collapse of Rome was caused by many favtors but the most important include the over extending of the empire, corruption at the highest levels, and an ecominc model where the cost of the empire outweighed its value. Watch the WHOLE lecture. This is a top notch presentation done by one of the best in the world. Considered for a Pulitzer Prize for his recent book 1177 BC, Dr. Eric H. Cline is Professor of Classics and Anthropology and the current Director of the Capitol Archaeological Institute at The George Washington University. He is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fulbright scholar, an NEH Public Scholar, and an award-winning teacher and author. He has degrees in archaeology and ancient history from Dartmouth, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania; in May 2015, he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree (honoris causa) from Muhlenberg College. Dr. Cline is an active field archaeologist with 30 seasons of excavation and survey experience. Please complete it for me.

I've never heard even one time from historians the simplest fact that when there was excess the age of theft truly dawned, to steal by force, when theft became the main occupation, that is the secret destructive event which occurred! It has always been easier and more profitable to murder rape and steal than to work, like all trends in thought and action, the theft trend swept away all before it, the signs and symptoms of this are glaringly obvious. That is what happened, even the bible basically says the Hebrews borrowed heavily unto the Egyptians, and blah blah blah, theft is the destroying force, we have seen how it worked for the Spaniards. If you didn't know about the Spaniards and tried to figure out what happened to the Inca and Aztecs you would come up with all kinds of crap, but it was humans who destroyed it, Theft is truly the most destructive force the worlds civilisations have ever faced and will face in the future!

It's good until 24:00 when he blames climate change. This is of course impossible because there were no Republicans born yet to cause it.

Eventually a financial system accumulates too much debt or other crap and has to be reset. Now we do it through printing money.

Aren't the Phoenecians really the most apt to fit the description "Sea Peoples"???? And doesn't Zukerman's argument rule out the rest (esp. the earthquake that Cline follows up with!) wrt Canaan?

So, he questions whether or not the Exodus took place; but, he believes the Trojan war happened. Got it- he teaches history from the perspective of the heathen.

There is zero archeological evidence for the exodus. The Bible is not a history book.
