Sea People's Ship

Posted by Picasa

The Sea peoples were identified as some ethnic groups who were identified as "raiders" in the 14th century BC, and who raided many of the early civilizations around the Eastern Mediterranean. Figure 8.18 is a tentative isometric reconstruction, of a Sea people's Ship (or at least the bow section) depicting the main elements of it's architecture, as shown by the positions of the bodies of three dead warriors.
