Same here, I agree with A.

If the artifacts were NOT traded outside Canaanite then that would support the argument.

Weaken? I think it would support the argument that Hyskos's were cananites.

The excavations were done in Avaris(a non-cannnite) city...so if they are found there means exports were done from Ashkelon(a cannite city)...Am I wrong??
