Avaris was the Hyksos capital of Egypt located at the modern site of Tell el-Dab’a in the northeastern region of the Nile Delta. As the main course of the Nile migrated eastward, its position at the hub of Egypt’s delta emporia made it a major capital suitable for trade. It was occupied from about the 18th century until its capture by Ahmose I.
