Summary

The movement of people and ideas from north to south and the renewal of trade with Egypt instigated a revival of settlement in the Levant, first along the coast and valleys, then in the highlands. Fortified ritual centers become foci of integrated polities with flourishing crafts, marking the high-water mark of second millennium Canaanite culture.
