The period of Egyptian history treated in the present volume has been continued from the end of the reign of Seankh-ka-E a, the last king of the Xlth Dynasty, to the end of the reign ofT hothmes II., i.e., from about 2500 to 1550 B.C. This period is one of the most important in the history of Egypt, for during its course theE gyptians founded their great colony inN ubia, and defeated the Hyksos, and began to extend their possessions into Western A sia. We see the capital of the country now definitely transferred fromM emphis toT hebes, the result probably of the difficulty found in ruling the warlike tribes of the south from a city so far to the north as Memphis.
