Chronological synchronisms between Egypt and the Central Levant during the third millennium BC

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Results of the Associated Regional Chronologies for the Ancient Near East Project (ARCANE) have produced a sweeping new dating schema for Western Asia. Revised radiocarbon-based chronologies for the Levant in addition to new radiocarbon dates for Egypt have demonstrated the need for a revision of previously accepted synchronisms between the regions. With a focus on the Central Levant, this paper revises the relative and absolute chronological frameworks underpinning synchronisms between Egypt and the Levant, thus providing a refreshed basis on which to place exchange activity and foreign relations in the Eastern Mediterranean from the late fourth to the end of the third millennium BC.
