The Hyksos Origin of the name * The Hyksos rulers of the fifteenth dynasty of Egypt were of non-Egyptian origin. Most archaeologists describe the Hyksos as a mix of Asiatic peoples, suggested by recorded names such as Khyan and Sakir-Har that resemble Asiatic names, and pottery findings that resemble Palestinian pottery. * The name Hyksos was used by the Egyptian historian Manetho (ca. 300 BCE), who, according to the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus (1st century CE), translated the word as “king-shepherds” or “captive shepherds.” Josephus himself wished to demonstrate the great antiquity of the Jews, and thus identified the Hyksos with the Hebrews of the Bible. Geographical Control * The Hyksos first appeared in Egypt c.1800 BC, during the eleventh dynasty, and began their climb to power in the thirteenth dynasty, coming out of the second intermediate period in control of Avaris and the Delta.
Although there is evidence of early Sumerian contact with the Egyptians, Egypt's civilization was largely self-generated and its history and cultural patterns differed from Mesopotamia. The early Dynastic Period was Egypt’s era of initial unification and state building under the guidelines of its first three royal dynasties. In the years between 2660 and 2180 B. C. the basic marks of the cultures of Egypt arose. Egypt was one kingdom and it was divided into provinces, or the names of provinces.

The Amduat’s textual, iconographic, and symbolic content are an intrinsic part of Egyptian art history. The Amduat dates back to the time of the 18th Dynasty, the 19th Dynasty, and the 20th Dynasty, 1550 – 1080 BC, which is called the New Kingdom time period.

It has become a widely accepted model for when interpreting evidence of either cultural, or even political influences of people from one cultural background over those of another. In our case of Egyptian influence over Canaan, the small finds of Egyptian artifacts have led to a suggestion of an indication of the shift in “pharaonic policy” in the region at the time. In application to the given situation, direct rule comes to say that Egypt's Pharaohs of the Ramesside period had occupied and imposed “direct imperial administration” on Canaan. Findings of artifacts of Egyptian origin in the Levant has led many archaeologists to believe that this was proof of an increase in the Egyptian’s military and bureaucratic influences the when there had been there in previous years. The direct model would come in to argue these claims by saying that the Egyptians' economic and political policies had transformed themselves over time into a military occupation of Canaan.
Axum adopted Christianity form the Egyptian religion known as Coptic Christianity.

Their major deity was Seth but they also worshipped other Egyptian gods as well as Anat and Astarte, two closely related goddesses of Syro-Palestinian origin. Conventional forms of Egyptian literature contineud to be composed or copied. Having established their capital at Avaris, they appear to have gradually spread westward, establishign centres such as Tell El-Yahudiya, and taking control of the important Egyptian city of Memphis. The discover of a small number of objects incribed with the names of Hyksos kings at sites such as Knossos, Baghdad and Boghazkoy, suggest that the new rulers maintained trading links with the Near East and the Agean. Seals at the Nubian site of Kerma bear the name Sheshi, apparently
