Abstract The paper summaries the results of the excavations of the New Kingdom Egyptian garrison town at Tel Beth-Shean. The stratigraphy, architecture, monuments, and various finds are analysed, and questions related to social structure and interrelation with the local population are raised. Main results of a variety of studies published in three volumes of the final excavation reports of the Hebrew University expedition are integrated in the survey. The paper emphasies different aspects of the Egyptian presence in the three main periods:the 18, 19th and 20thDynasties, and raises questions relating to the strength of the Egyptian empire during the 20th Dynasty.
