This chapter examines the Hyksos' rule of ancient Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period. It explains that during this period, the strongest centre of population and power in the country appears to be Tell el-Daba and that its rulers entered the Egyptian hieroglyphic record as heqau-khasut which later came to be known as Hyksos. It describes the late middle kingdom administration, the administration of Egypt in the Second Intermediate Period, the institutions from middle kingdom into new kingdom.

Keywords:   Hyksos, Second Intermediate Period, Tell el-Daba, hieroglyphic record, heqau-khasut, middle kingdom
