My first assumption was that the collapse of the copper trade was the end of it all in and around 1159 BC, but that is not realistic at all. The successors of this trade empire, or at least parts of it continued to operate at first as the Phoenicians. It continued to operate into Roman times. Memories were not lost and trade routes remained open but far less frequented.
