The mortuary temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu in Thebes. To scholars studying the Sea Peoples, the Medinet Habu temple, erected in the first half of the 12th century B.C., offers a treasure of detailed wall reliefs from which we learn how the Sea Peoples looked and how they fought. In this view of the east face of the massive second pylon, Ramesses is depicted presenting captives to the gods. Not seen in this view are reliefs of a group of captured Sea Peoples and Ramesses III’s naval battle with the Sea Peoples.
