Example text

All hitherto established theories concerning the homelands of the North Sea people are therefore in contradiction to the above-mentioned methodical principles and must be rejected . Only the territories which in prehistory are called the "Nordic parts," comprising Northern Hanover, SchleswigHolstein, Denmark and Sweden, with Oland and Gotland, can be reckoned to have been the departing points of these peoples . 3. ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE FOR THE ORIGIN OF THE NORTH SEA PEOPLES, IN THE NORTH SEA AREA When contemporary Egyptian inscriptions and the Atlantis report both agree that the North Sea people, or Atlanteans, originated in the islands and coasts of the "World Ocean" in the North, we have to ascertain whether we can confirm or deny these statements on the basis of the archaeological remains of these people .

Their statements under interrogation have been recorded for us by many writers . The kings and princes of the Northern and sea peoples became the personal captives of the Pharaoh . Ramses III particularly stressed that he had made prisoner the " ten princes " of the Northern peoples and had carried them off in triumph. HISTORICAL BASIS OF THE ATLANTIS LEGEND 47 The victory of Ramses III seemed complete, but it was in fact only a Pyrrhic victory. He had to give battle several times more, in a lengthy struggle against the North people and the Philistines that is also mentioned in the Bible .

Many remains of these peoples have been found in parts they destroyed or occupied, and we cannot search for their homeland in parts where their remains are foreign and unknown. For these reasons it is basically wrong to look for the homeland of the North Sea people around Sinai, in Palestine, in Asia Minor, on the A Bean Islands, in Crete, Greece or Macedonia. C. Milojcic has therefore stressed the point that the conquering people must have had their home north of the line Macedonia-Thracia-Hellespont .
