In this episode Seth Fleishman from the World History by a Jew YouTube channel takes us into an interesting story that depicts the Sea Peoples in the Old Testament in a mythical story involving a Jewish woman and Judge Deborah.
It's in memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) a''h, as we explore an amazing Jewish woman and judge: Deborah. By reviewing her story, we will solve an ancient mystery regarding the settlement of Sea Peoples in northern Israel after the Bronze Age Collapse. We'll be focusing on two groups of Sea People specifically: the Shardana (Sherden) and the Tjeker (Tjekker). With the help of Deborah in the Book of Judges, we will learn about her foes, and then we'll utilize the latest archaeological discoveries to identify these people and their origins.
For those who may not be familiar with the Sea Peoples they are / were a purported seafaring confederation that attacked ancient Egypt and other regions of the East Mediterranean prior to and during the Late Bronze Age collapse (1200–900 BCE).
Following the creation of the concept in the nineteenth century, with famous historian Gaston Maspero being one of the first to use the term, it became one of the most famous chapters of Egyptian history, given its connection with, in the words of Wilhelm Max Müller: "the most important questions of ethnography and the primitive history of classic nations".
Their origins undocumented and highly disputed today, the various Sea Peoples have been proposed to have originated from places that include western Asia Minor, the Aegean, the Mediterranean islands and Southern Europe.
Although the archaeological inscriptions do not include reference to a migration, the Sea Peoples are conjectured to have sailed around the eastern Mediterranean and invaded Anatolia, Syria, Phoenicia, Canaan, Cyprus and Egypt toward the end of the Bronze Age. And in many cases they settled throughout the lands that they raided.
