Egyptian-Style Pottery Dated to the 13th Century BCE at Hazor, Megiddo and Lachish: Corpus, Ware Fabrics and Typology

Abstract

This paper is a synopsis of a complete study focused on three main city-states of Canaan, Hazor, Megiddo, and Lachish, during the 13th century BCE. It addresses the question of the Egyptian occupation there, beyond the so-called garrisons mainly situated on the Mediterranean Coast. Through a comparative study of the Egyptian-style pottery, an attempt is made to shed light on the actual influence and hegemony of the Egyptian Empire. A typology of the Egyptian forms is first detailed along with an analysis of the ware fabrics, in order to identify the imports and the imitations and to infer some hypothesis about the potters and the sites under study.
