'PEOPLE CREATE HISTORY, PEOPLE CHANGE HISTORY!
EGYPTIAN STATE REPRESENTATIVES BEYOND THE EASTERN BORDER'


With the rise of script, representatives of the Egyptian state became detectable in the ancient record. These people shape our perception and historiography of Egypt’s ‘official’ engagement in the Levant and Sinai. However, past research tends to lean towards the entities ‘administration’, ‘military’, and ‘king’ to write Egypt’s history beyond its Eastern Border.
Although this is a valid and fair approach, a careful look at Egyptian functionaries dealing with state matters in the East, can, however, help nuancing the historical picture. The study of Egyptian state representatives in the southern Levant and Sinai during the 2nd millennium BCE suggests modifying and reevaluating our views; mainly concerning three aspects: How
did they pursue Egyptian interests abroad? When did they adapt their method? How many were involved, and what could they achieve with this manpower? Answers to these questions are not only provided by written evidence, but also Egyptian remains in the local archaeological record.
