Late Bronze Age II Egyptian Pottery

During the Late Bronze Age Egypt expanded its control over the entire southern Levant up to northern Syria. As a result the already strong Egyptian influence over the region became much stronger. Many Egyptian style 'governor's mansions' were found in southern Levantine sites, such as Beth-Shean or Deir el-Balah. Egyptian pottery was found in great quantity at these sites and in lesser quantity throughout the region.
