The Hyksos Invasion in Egypt

Post  Roberta2000 on Thu Nov 13, 2014 6:49 pm

The middle kingdom in Egypt fell around 1650 B.C., after the invasion of the Hyksos, a western Asian group of people. From the Hyksos the Egyptians started to use bronze tools, weapons, and horse-drawn chariots in war. The Egyptians used these to drive out the Hyksos in 1520 B.C. The Pharaoh Ahmose I drove out the Hyksos, reuniting Egypt and establishing the New Kingdom.

Wow Roberta! That is a very interesting topic to talk about. Ahmose I was the pharaoh that drove out the Hyksos, reuniting Egypt, which established the New Kingdom of Egypt. The Egyptian’s were smart people and they took in mind the way they were defeated and why. Because of that, they had the ability to defeat the Hyksos, using their own weaponry. It’s a funny thing actually; using your own things against you.

Waooo!! Roberta that was A very good Topic. Yes the Egyptians Were very smart to use the same tools to fight over them because they were both even, but the Egyptians were more powerful and they took the Hyksos down. Good Job Roberta. Once Again! Smile

Good topic! After Ahmose I drove out the Hyksos, in 1500 BC it became the most powerful state in the Near East.
