Jonathan Tubb, British Museum, considers evidence of the Egyptian occupation of Tell es-Sa’idiyeh, ancient Zarethan, in the Jordan Valley.

Tell es-Sa'idiyeh was taken into Egyptian control as part of its Asiatic Empire in the 12th and 13th centuries BC. A remarkable series of public buildings has been uncovered, all built using Egyptian construction methods. This lecture considers manifestations of the Egyptian legacy when the site was re-occupied on two separate occasions several centuries after the fall of the empire.
