According to a news report, archaeologists have found an ancient Egyptian city which is believed to be Avaris, the capital of the Hyksos. The Hyksos were Asiatic people who ruled Egypt for about one hundred years (ca. 1650-1542 B.C., if the low chronology is followed). Others date the Hyksos conquest from 1664-1569 B.C.
