Just a bump to post a video of a lecture by Dr. Eric Cline (Levantine archaeologist and author of 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed.) It's long (1h10m) but it presents a nice insight into Levantine trade and interrelationships pre-BAC.

Cline says Levantine tin for bronze came from Afghanistan, BTW.

This is about events later than the time period under consideration in the OP, but I, for one, find any and all archaeology of the Levant fascinating, especially stuff about trade, merchants, and the like, so I thought I'd share.
