Mourad, A. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

Oft overlooked for the ‘international’ Late Bronze Age, the Middle Bronze Age world of the Mediterranean featured a dynamic network of interlinked trading powers and agents. The resulting cultural encounters arguably altered the history of Egypt, spurring the formation of the Egyptian Empire, and inevitably influencing the development of civilization in the region. The paper explores not only the nature and development of trade networks between Egypt and the Middle Bronze Age Near East, but also the role they played in transforming civilizations.
