Description

Ancient Egypt had complex links with her neighbours. Warfare, diplomacy and trade formed the building blocks on which the Pharaohs founded their historical legacy. A rich heritage of archaeological evidence enables us to reconstruct this world of prestige, glory and intrigue. This unit explores the cycle of trade and conquest between Egypt and her North African neighbours, relations with the Levant, and the delicate balance of power between Egypt and her powerful northern rivals, Mesopotamia and Anatolia.
