A good question. Let's pick a central issue to society: the relationship
between men and women. Could we e.g. answer the following questions re
1. What was the power relationship between men and women (remember Boudica)
2. How many wives did men have (or husbands for women)
3. Was there a dowry system?
4. Did men and women marry "for love"?
I will admit that I haven't a clue on any of these in the Bronze age.
