Operational Bases: Gaza and Beth Shan

 = Paper =

A. SPALINGER, "Operational Bases: Gaza and Beth Shan", in Chr. KARLSHAUSEN and Cl. OBSOMER (ed.), "De la Nubie à Qadech. La guerre dans l'Égypte ancienne – From Nubia to Kadesh. War in Ancient Egypt", Brussels, 2016.
Using the concept of an "operational theater," this study attempts to investigate the significance of Gaza during the New Kingdom with special contrast emphasised between Dynasty XVIII and the later Ramesside Epoch. This military term is of particular importance as it can be applied successfully to the development of key cities (or localities) at certain points of time. Over the course of years, operational theatres alter and can disappear.
