The Sea Peoples were a confederation of tribes from around the Mediterranean islands, the Aegean, Anatolia, Balkans and Levant. These tribes included the Sherden, Lukka, Peleset, Tjekker, Sheklesh, Dardani, Weshwesh, Teresh and Ekwesh. These tribes were a constant menace as pirate sea raiders who attacked Greece, Cyprus, Hittite coasts, Phoenicia, Canaan and Egypt. They were often hired as mercenaries. A huge confederation attacked Egypt at the end of the New Kingdom by land and sea.
The Sea Peoples fought Egypt, the Hittites, the Phoenicians and Canaanites, the Mycenaeans and Trojans and as Philistines against the Hebrews.
Our Sea Peoples were sculpted by Michael and Alan Perry. Click here for more historical information and a quick painting guide by Nigel Stillman.
