"Megiddo, Kadesh, and the Aftermath". An international conference on war and peace in Anti
In 1985, the late William J. Murnane published the first edition of his book The Road to Kadesh. A Historical Interpretation of the Battle Reliefs of King Sety I at Karnak. Undoubtedly, this volume marked a milestone in the interpretation of historical events connected with Egypt’s foreign relations in the late 18th and early 19th Dynasties, and still remains an invaluable aid to researchers studying ancient Egyptian history, society, and culture during the New Kingdom. More than 30 years have passed since Murnane’s book was published, and there have been many new discoveries in the fields of archaeology, history, and philology of Ancient Egypt and the Near East. We believe that the time has come for us to revise the old conclusions and try to formulate a new outline of the political and cultural history of Egypt and the Near East in the 15th through 13th centuries BC.
