The Mediterranean in the Late Bronze Age

November 2016 - In the Late Bronze Age, the Egyptian New Kingdom dominated the Mediterranean Sea and West Asia, while the Phoenicians and Mycenaean Greeks carried on trade and piracy. The Scythians controlled Central Asia, and the Harappans controlled the Indus Valley. Further east in China, it was the Shang Dynasty.
