The 4th millennium BCE was a period of radical transformations taking place in northeast Africa and the southwest Levant. Early interactions between these regions, up to the present time, have been understood as occurring under the impetus of nascent centres of royal power in Upper Egypt. The present paper suggests that the importance of regional dynamics and localised identities have been undervalued. With the application of approaches drawn from sociology and colonial theory, a new trajectory has been derived accounting for the diversity in forms of relations that developed between northeast Africa and the southwest Levant during this period.
