Publisher Description

A catastrophe of unimaginable proportions struck in the middle of the twelfth century BC and with a sudden swiftness brought Old World civilizations to an abrupt end. This initiated the world’s longest and deepest known dark age.


When the world finally recovered centuries later, new written languages had replaced old ones, a new strategic and useful metal had replaced the old one, and the historical reality of the old civilizations had been replaced by yore and myth invented from fragments passed down through the barrier of the long deep dark age.



Some of these fragments, and possibly some references to the catastrophe itself, may be found in the Old Testament and in ancient Greek literature. Out of the fragmented preserved memories, and stories built around them, we became what we are today.
