The Egyptian Empire in Canaan

At The Rockefeller Museum

    01 May 2018
  • Curator: Fawzi Ibrahim
  • Rockefeller Archaeological Museum

The defeat of Canaanites by the Egyptians at the battle of Megiddo (1457 BCE) was followed by a period of Egyptian rule over Canaan lasting some 350 years. Documents from this time point to a direct military and administrative presence in Canaan. Exhibited in this gallery are monumental Egyptian artifacts of this time, excavated at Tel Beth Shean in the 1920s, including two victory stelae of the pharaoh Seti I and a statue of Ramesses III.
