! hour and 10 minutes long but well worth the time.
Short version from 1500 to 1200 BC was the golden age of the Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern civilizations, This was the high point and the end point of the Bronze Age. From 1200 to 1100 BC eight out of the big nine civilizations died. By died I mean that after 1100 BC their written history ends, nothing is written in those languages EVER AGAIN! The surviving civilization, Egypt in never a major player again. The Egyptians successfully fought off two major invasions in 1207 and again later in 1177 BC by the "Sea Peoples" but afterwards Egypt declined.
So what caused this? People want a simple answer. There isn't one. What happened was that a combination of bad things happened and the total was more than they could handle. But lets name a few, climate change not the phoney stuff Al Gore pushes but long sustained drought. Earthquakes plural, disruption of trade routes which ended bronze production. Mass migration of the Sea Peoples. Internal political turmoil. Yes, Sometimes A causes B but there is not always a smoking gun. Not mentioned in this documentary are plagues that we know ravaged the Egyptians and the Hittites too.
Yes there were survivors but a Neo-Hittite is not the same as a Hittite, the people living in these lands might or might not even be descended from the previous peoples. This could be a case of a literate people being totally replaced by illiterate invaders. All we know is that the written history of those peoples stops forever.
What follows is a dark age like the one after the fall of Rome.
