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

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Results of the Associated Regional Chronologies for the Ancient Near East Project (ARCANE) have produced a sweeping new dating schema for Western Asia. In particular, the radiocarbon-based ‘High Chronology’ for the Southern Levant fundamentally changes the dating of the Early Bronze Age periodisations on which the archaeology of the region is based. This paper examines the radiocarbon and archaeological data to develop a revised framework for chronological synchronisms between Egypt and the Southern Levant. This provides a revised basis from which to assess exchange activity and foreign relations between the regions from the late fourth to the end of the third millennium BC.
