Chapter Summary

This chapter summarizes the results of the excavations of the New Kingdom Egyptian garrison town at Tel Beth-Shean. The stratigraphy, architecture, monuments, and various finds are analyzed, and questions related to social structure and interrelation with the local population are raised. Main results of a variety of studies published in three volumes of the final excavation reports of the Hebrew University expedition are integrated in the survey. The chapter emphasizes different aspects of the Egyptian presence in the three main periods: the 18th, 19th and 20th Dynasties, and raises questions relating to the strength of the Egyptian empire during the 20th Dynasty. The new excavations at Tel Beth-Shean have refined one's knowledge and sheds additional light on the history of the site during the 2nd millennium BCE.

Keywords: 18th Dynasty; 19th Dynasty; 20th Dynasty; architecture; Egyptian garrison town; excavation; stratigraphy; Tel Beth-Shean
