Four Notes on the Size of Late Bronze Age Canaan

Abstract

Scholarly consensus according to which Canaan in Late Bronze Age texts covered the entire area of the Egyptian province in Asia was disrupted with the appearance of N. P. Lemche's 1991 work on the Canaanites and their land. The present study concentrates on four key sources in an effort to shed more light on the size of the land of Canaan in the Late Bronze Age. It concludes that Canaan was the political-territorial name for the Egyptian province in Asia in the Late Bronze Age, that there is not a single text that defines the size of Canaan differently, and that the phantom of the "Great Canaan" should disappear from the scientific literature.
