The project assesses The Ties that Bind networks of contact and exchange. It aims to identify the processes through which communities negotiate and maintain foreign relations by examining interactions between ancient Egypt and the Near East in the first half of the Second Millennium BC. Through an innovative interdisciplinary approach combining fieldwork, evaluation of archaeological materials, and current theories concerning cultural transformation, it will propose new insights into how prosperous networks emerged and persisted across changing socio-cultural landscapes. Ultimately, it will add to our understanding of human connections, elucidating how we can adapt and thrive in an increasingly globalised world.
