The Middle and Late Bronze Age was a period of intense social and economic transitions in the Mediterranean world. During this time a number of East Mediterranean Civilizations were entangled in a multi-cultural exchange network of products and expertise. Within this network, the mobility of goods and people was accompanied by the mobility of cultural elements and perceptions. This paper presents some preliminary thoughts on how this cultural mobility could have favored the formation of a mutual economic and cultural understanding and coordination. The approach focuses on the interaction between Crete, Egypt and Western Asia, on technological, economic and cultural terms, and attempts to explore whether this cultural mobility had an overall effect on the communities.
