Furthermore the composite bow was another pertinent contribution to Egyptian weaponry as this combined with the chariot were the main weapons attributed to military success in this period. Even though these contributions were classed as short term, the basic designs and ideas behind their designs would of contributed to the long-term evolution of the military technology as well as the new metals introduced such as bronze. The significance of the Hyksos’ reign more significantly impacted Egypt in the long term, principally with the psychological aftermath they prompted.

What impacts did the Hyksos have on New Kingdom Egypt? The Hyksos impacted this era in Egyptian history through many significant cultural and technological developments. The foreign kings, who adopted the titles and regalia of the Egyptian pharaohs, dominated Egypt for most of the Second Intermediate Period. Frequently referred to as ‘Asiatics’ by the Egyptians, the Hyksos originated from the Middle East and extended their political and economic influence as far as Cusae in Middle Egypt.

Originating from strongly fortified towns in the Asiatic region, they had access to the latest military technology. Egypt’s primitive weapons and haphazard army was no match for this “Well equipped fighting machine” and so, to expel them and regain land, status and wealth; they needed to adopt such weaponry. Probably the most important weapon was the War Chariot, which enabled the conquest of the Near East, by allowing mobile warfare, thus obtaining valuable trade routes and resources. They differed from traditional Egyptian Chariotry, having additional stability (for rough terrains), speed (pulled by two horses), and size (two warriors: a driver and a fighter). The stronger, more accurate and flexible Hyksos’s composite bow was used by the fighter, which meant less hand-to-hand combat.
One major military enhancement is the Minie ball. The Minie Ball was very effective, and very powerful. It could kill people with just one hit.

What started off as an attraction to the East, and not the West, led Europeans to discover the Americas. Europeans not only discovered the Americas, but they began to colonize the “New World” even though ancient Americans and their descendents were already living there for thousands of years. At this time, most native people were not able to defend themselves because Europeans were a lot more advanced than they were. European nations were indeed more advance, but the main reasons why they were so successful at colonizing the Americas in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries relies heavily on their desire to colonize, immunity from old world diseases, and a well-equipped military. During the sixteenth century, European nations had the desire
The Hyksos were driven out of ancient Egypt by the New Kingdom’s earliest ruler. Egypt did in fact benefit from the Hyksos’ foreign rule, though.
