New Kingdom Map

Egypt map

January 2017 - The New Kingdom was a period of Ancient Egyptian history corresponding to the Late Bronze Age, about 1500-1200 BC, in the north-eastern corner of Africa.

During the time of the New Kingdom, Egyptian pharaohs conquered northward along the coast of the Eastern Mediterranean, into what is now Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. This created an Egyptian empire.

The Egyptian New Kingdom empire lasted until about 1200 BC, when it fell apart. Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria all became independent countries again, and Egypt entered the Third Intermediate Period.
