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 (EBA) periodisations on which the archaeology of the region is based. This period is coeval with the Egyptian First Dynasty to First Intermediate Period, covering the late fourth and third millennia B.C. Within this new framework, assessment of archaeological and radiocarbon data from both Egypt and the Levant exposes the need for a transformation of traditional constructions of international relations and the dynamics behind the collapse of urban entities. This paper examines some implications of the High Chronology for our understanding of Egyptian relations with the southern Levant.
