Resulting from an international colloquium held at the British Museum in 1992, this book is largely devoted to the subject of Egypt's relations with the Mediterranean world in the second millennium BC. 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, with papers on Egypt's connections with Cyprus and Minoan Crete, and chronological problems also discussed. These are placed in a wider 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.
