Despite the progress of historical research, speaking about the Sea Peoples is a delicate undertaking. Texts deliver few relevant indications on their origin. A category of testimonies can however bring indications on their cultural affinities. This is the equipment that the Sea Peoples were using. This paper examines their weapons, ships, chariots, etc., in the iconographic testimonies of the reliefs of the mortuary temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu.
