The Sea Peoples group known as the Shekelesh are one of the less well-known and obscure groups. Not much is known about them and they are only mentioned in passing in the ancient texts, such as the annals of Ramesess III from his mortuary temple at Medinet Habu and the Ugaritic Texts from ancient Canaan.The group is also mentioned in the Kom el-Ahmar Stela from the reign of Merneptah.But what we do know of this group is quite impressive and the Shekelesh officially make an appearance around 1220 BCE attacking Egypt and again in 1186 BCE invading the Delta.It appears, that although not much is said on this group of people, that they were still a force to be reckoned with.
In this second episode of a multiple episode series we explore the individual Sea Peoples groups mentioned by ancient sources who wrote about the Late Bronze Age Collapse.
