Context: The fall of the Bronze Age is regarded by historians as the most catastrophic event in human history. With the attacks of the Sea Peoples, the great Bronze Age empires fell one by one. The Hittites, the Levant, and Greece felt their wrath. Even still, the great Sea Peoples are a complete historical mystery. Conjecture as to their identity has ranged from Greeks themselves (fighting other cultures then turning on eachother and destroying themselves, launching them into a Dark Age) to the ancestors of the Vikings. However, I posit that the Sea Peoples were most likely central Europeans.

Anyways, I guess I just need to give a singular reason to vote Aff.
‘We have, for instance, found pottery resembling corresponding items from Greece and Cyprus in terms of form and decoration, and also cylindrical loom weights for textile production that could be found in central and south-east Europe around the same time.
