Chapter Summary

It was during one of the coffee breaks at the 9th International Congress of Egyptologists in Grenoble in 2004 that Dr. Yossi Mizrachi raised the idea of hosting a conference about the interconnections between Egypt and Canaan at the University of Haifa. The conference materialized when Prof. Adam Zertal of Department of Archaeology saw the opportunity to introduce his finds of the Manasseh Hill Survey with their Egyptian background to the Egyptological scholarly world. The encounters, some of them among the most famous events in Egyptian history, are consistently studied all over the world and included in every elementary program for Egyptologists. None of the main subjects of the convention was left without a tour, so the participants were able to walk in the footsteps of the ancients and the modern explorers alike and added another dimension to their scholarly debate, the climate and geography of the Land of Canaan.
