Is this huge inscription our missing link to the biblical ‘Sea Peoples’?

It’s either an intricate forgery, or the archaeological find of the decade. A team of scholars of the ancient Luwian language have deciphered a 29-meter-long hieroglyphic inscription from the Late Bronze Age more than 3,000 years ago, which is the only contemporary account of the fall of the Hittite Empire and the rapacious conquering of the biblical “Sea Peoples” as far south as Ashkelon.

And the back story of what may prove to be a missing link in the understanding of Levantine civilization is equally interesting.
