Abstract: Adams and Friedman discuss foreign influences and extra-regional imports found at Hierakonpolis. The majority of the paper concentrates on ceramic remains. '…[E]xtra-regional contact …can be defined in three ways: objects or raw materials brought into the region from another country…; objects or raw materials brought in from somewhere else in Egypt…; objects of local maufacture which copy foreign prototypes, or have developed from them.' (page 317). Adams and Friedman speculate that greater access to eastern goods was possible once Maadi was abandoned and as Naqada culture moved south.
