Thousands of potsherds have been recovered from the treasury of Thutmosis Ist, a large architectural complex at Karnak North, Luxor/Thebes/Egypt. The various strata within the perimeter revealed a rich material from the early Middle Kingdom until Roman times, showing the evolution of the indigenous pottery as well as the extent of contacts between Thebes and its neighbours, from Nubia in the south towards the Oases, the Levante and the Mediterranean areas.
The excursus A is a detailed analysis of the Palestinian imports, mainly amphorae from the 2nd Millenium B.C. The Palestinian material is extremly important for the reconstruction of Theban trade connections and exchange with the Canaanite region starting already during the late Middle Kingdom. Wheras Canaanite contacts are already well testified from the Eastern Nile Delta from this period, it is the first large collection of Canaanite jars from Upper Egypt, which is studied in detail.
