      Egyptian culture, of which religion was an integral part, was influential in Nubia as early as predynastic times and in Syria in the 3rd millennium bce. During the New Kingdom, Egypt was very receptive to cults from the Middle East, while Egyptian medical and magical expertise was highly regarded among the Hittites, Assyrians. The New Kingdom of ancient Egypt was a golden age of architecture and art. A variety of factors combined to make the New Kingdom one of the most creative cultures of the ancient world.

      Of all the literature written during the ancient Egyptian civilization, those produced during the New Kingdom ( B.C.) represent the most skillful and mature.   One of the most mysterious and powerful women in ancient Egypt, Nefertiti was queen alongside Pharaoh Akhenaten from to B.C. and may have ruled the New Kingdom outright after her husband.

      The one important exception came during Egypt's Second Intermediate Period, when a mysterious foreign group of people, known as the Hyksos, conquered Egypt and established the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Dynasties some time shortly after BCE. For centuries, the Hyksos rule over Egypt was an enigma shrouded in half-truths and myth. Get this from a library! Imagining the past historical fiction in New Kingdom Egypt.
