What caused the collapse of the Bronze age?
What caused bronze age civilization to go off the rails and into a dumpster fire?
If your answer is the sea peoples, who do you think they were?

While bronze is stronger than copper, iron is cheaper than both.
Add carbon to iron and you get steel, this steel was prized in weapon making

German's made the best tanks in WWII
Russian's made the most tanks in WWII

Guess which strategy won ?

The eruption of Thera and subsequent tsunamis.

This certainly didn't help. Would explain the migration of Cretans from their island to the near east
Also think the invasion of the Dorians kinda finished off the Mycenaeans.
May have started the avalanche that destroyed multiple civilizations.

I forgot about the dark ages. The Macedonians ended that.

The Hellenistic era begins with the death of Alexander the Great.

I think it was the dreaded double whammy effect.

The Thera eruption disrupted trade among coastal civilizations and while they were trying to recover from that you get an invasion of outsiders.

Just one of those events the civilizations might have survived. Getting both in short order started a domino effect.

Probably this. The impact the eruption(s) had throughout the region and then a bunch of outsiders invading culture(s) that had become relatively complacent and indolent was the primary cause of the collapse. The abandonment of the cities and diaspora of much of the people is fascinating.

I like Carlin's analogy (taken from elsewhere): the Bronze Age societies were once the young man walking up the stairs in wooden clogs, but were now the old man coming down the stairs in silk slippers (or something like that).

That is a great analogy.

I never saw the Depp version, were they still orange and short?

Seems the PC crowd would have issues with height and pigment.
