Anthony Migchels says they are ignoring the evidence in the Old Testament:
"Moses and Israel claim to have been behind it."
(Disclaimer - This is beyond my area of expertise but Migchels, a longtime contributor to this site, is a credible witness. Part Two, War with the Nephilim, will appear tomorrow.)

In Mainstream history, which is written by the winners (which is the Bank), the Bronze Age Collapse is a 'mystery'.
But in fact: The Bible, Deuteronomy in particular, claims Israel did it.
What is the Bronze Age Collapse?
From around 3000BC until 1200 BC, there existed around the Mediterranean an extensive network of Empires: the Myceneans in Greece, the Minoans on Crete. The Hittites in Anatolia. The Assyrians in Mesopotamia. The Supreme Power of the day was Egypt. Canaan, the Levant, was held by several tribes, and under the domination of the Hittites, Assyrians, and Egyptians.
These Empires had an extensive, international trade route network that centered around tin and copper, the two metals that create Bronze when mixed. Copper was plentiful, while tin was scarce, and they went as far as Cornwall to acquire it.
Then, suddenly, around 1177 BC, these Empires were destroyed. And in no uncertain fashion: they were utterly annihilated, and those who attacked them killed everything that breaths, including the livestock. Only the Egyptians and the Assyrians survived but were severely weakened by the attacks.
The Bronze Collapse is considered a major mystery, by 'science'.
And this is where it gets 'strange': because we have a famous text from a people that claim they killed all these folks. Or at least a number of them. It is the Torah, left to us by Moses.
Here's Deuteronomy 7:1-6:
"When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son."
Moses mentions both the Canaanite Kingdoms and Tribes and the Hittites. The Hittites were a complete mystery for the longest time; it was only in 1906 that Hittite remains were found. The Old Testament for a long time was the only record we had of their existence.
While the Biblical timeline is not entirely clear on these events, it is also important that after the collapse, and ensuing 'dark age', the first political entities to arise in Canaan were indeed the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah.
Canaan about 1000 BC. This map is from Wikipedia, and Mainstream History accepts this as the reality of those days.
Not only does Moses claim the attacks, Israel and Judah are the follow-up Kingdoms in Canaan.
Why is it relevant? In itself it is already an important historical 'discovery': searching the internet, some individuals have seemingly come to the same conclusion, which is predictable, because it is quite obvious. But they are non-entities, and the 'scientific consensus' is as described. Write a book about it, and one could have an 'academic career' centering just around this 'hypothesis'.
Interestingly, it's not just the Mainstream that ignores the obvious: Christian and Jewish scholars are also silent. Yes, the Scientism Religion's main obsession is denying everything the Bible says (whether we like the Bible or not, 'science' does make a point of claiming the exact opposite of everything the Good Book states), but typically they are rebutted by the religious. Not in this case though: they too overlook the obvious connection.
But there is more to the story.
Moses intimates how God instructed him in how to go about the conquering of the Promised Land. And criticasters of both the Bible and the Jews have taken this as proof of a psychotic and cruel God, and his Chosen People of like mind.
But the Truth is very different. (Part 2 - War on the Nephilim Tomorrow)
