Sample text

Throughout the text these two peoples are always mentioned in close association with one another. In the poem the composition of the Hittite confederation is again described, but another of the Sea Peoples is mentioned in the context of Ramesses’ own soldiers: the Sherden, formerly captured in battle and put to work as mercenary troops. These accounts of the battle are important for what they say about the status of the Sea Peoples at the height of the Egyptian New Kingdom: the Lukka, Karkisa and Sherden were all significant military forces at this time, apparently operating mostly as mercenaries.

A third theory shifts the geographic focus to the south-east coast of Anatolia. In a Hittite record containing a list of cities the names Kummanni, Zunnahara, Adaniya and Tarsa appear together. The last two are most likely the cities of Adana and Tarsus, and it is certain that Tarsus was in existence in the Bronze Age. If the Egyptians were to ask a man of Tarsus where he came from, he might point in a northerly direction and answer ‘from Tarsa’, ‘Tarsha’ or ‘Tarssas’, and this would be written down by Egyptians as T-r-s or T-r-sh.

According to the inscriptions, in that year the Nine Bows (the traditional enemies of Egypt) appear as a ‘conspiracy in their isles’. The inscriptions go on to specify the groups involved in the Sea Peoples’ confederation: Peleset, Tjekker, Shekelesh, Denyen and Weshesh, who are classified as ‘foreign countries’. The hieroglyphics do not mention the Sherden among the invaders, but in two of the Sea Peoples’ ships warriors are depicted wearing the horned helmet generally associated with the Sherden.
