Starting in 4,000 b. C. the territory of Canaan was the connection between the East and West.
It was populated by very diverse people such as the Amorites, Jebusites, Hyksos, Philistines, Phoenicians, Arameans and Hebrews, who finally conquered the territory.
From settlements such as Jericho, Ugarit, Tyre or Damascus, the Canaanites traded with the neighboring territories of Mesopotamia and Egypt.
