The Hyksos were a foreign dynasty, which dominated Egypt from their capital in the Nile delta during the politically unstable Second Intermediate Period (1782-1570 BC). Portrayed by Egyptian propaganda a satheist barbarians, they were in fact a valuable part of Egyptian civilisations, and it is clear from Egyptian archaeological examination of the remains of the capital that their kings maintained relations with many foreign nations and constructed monumental buildings, using a combination of Egyptian and Canaanite styles. This book explores the religion, politics and customs of the Hyksos and provides a clear and concise overview of this short but controversial period of Egyptian history.
