The Dark Ages

In the draft of my new work related to Hannibal Quo Vadis, I have included a description of two waves of Indo-European migrations coming out of the Russian Step. The first wave was dated to the 12th and 11th centuries BCE, and affected the urban development of the history of Malta. The second wave was created by the innovation of the war-chariot. The war-chariot, in other words, had technically advanced in Indo-Europe into a new war technology. According to this technology a teams of war-horses were harnessed to a wheeled vehical that evolved into a compact two-wheel charior.  This led to a second wave of migration in which war-horse driven vehicals were able to migrate south and to penetrated into Anatolia (Turkey). From Anatolia the chariot technology migrated into into Lebanon (the Levant). As news spread, the Egyptians also became aware of the power and mobility of the chariot. The Egyptions quicky acquirted the technology for builting chariots because of their interest in it as an implement of war. The Egyptions' massed produced the chariot and trained teams of drivers, accompanied by archors, to use the chariot as a strategic battlefield attack platform. The timing of this adoption becane critical to repulsing a wave of "sea-people", and their advanced ships, which were attempting to invaded Egypt. As a consequence, the "sea-people" were evetually forced to abandon the sea and to melt into existing populations within the eastern and central Mediterranean Sea.
