The Bronze Age and the height of Ancient Egyptian power
During this New Kingdom Period the rulers took a proactive route to guarding Egypt’s borders, carving out an empire using their allies as buffers.
Many of today’s best remembered Rulers of Egypt were alive during this period. For example, Pharaohs Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Seti I, Ramses II and III, Thutmose III, Amenhotep III and of course Tutankhamun.
This was also another golden time for building projects with the Architects Amenhotep and Senenmut being encouraged to work for the Royal Family.
