Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the geographical pass of Arunah, for a long time considered the most significant among the three roads described in Thutmose Ill's Annals of his first campaign. These three are classically discussed as a part of the &t;way of the sea,&t; and the chapter suggests a new pass of the latter, together with new understandings of the Egyptian geographical descriptions. The author's interest in Shishak's list concerns the order of the sites along the pass of Arunah. This order is not at all agreed upon, which has resulted in different views on how to arrange the sites. Here again, as in Thutmose's list, there are no stations on the south-north road between Burin (Baqa el-Gharbiyeh) and Arunah. On the other hand, between Megiddo and Arunah there are no less than four stations.
