Egypt, the Aegean and the Levant: Interconnections in the Second Millennium BC : [proceedings of a Colloquium of the Same Name Held at the British Museum in July 1992]
British Museum Press for the Trustees of the British Museum, Jan 1, 1995 - History - 156 pages
Resulting from an international colloquium held at the British Museum in July 1992, this volume is largely devoted to the subject of Egypt's relations with the Mediterranean world in the second millennium BC, and more particularly during the Second Intermediate Period and New Kingdom. The implications of the remarkable discoveries at Tell el-Dab'a, the site of ancient Avaris (the Hyksos capital of Egypt), form the primary focus of the volume, with papers on Egypt's connections with Minoan Crete, Minoan painting, Cypriot pottery, Syro-Palestinian metalwork, and chronological problems. These are placed in their wider cultural and historical context by further contributions on Egypto-Minoan relations in general, on the evidence for Mycenaeans in Egypt and the presence of Orientalia at Mycenae, on Aegean influence in Egypto-Canaan, on the sources of Egyptian copper and on the nature of foreign timber imports into Egypt.
