In that respect, it is worth recalling these passages from "Magicians of the Gods":

Hancock begins by noting that what is now called Lebanon formed the northern portion of the biblical Canaan. Canaan also included modern Israel, the Palestinian territories, western Jordan, and southwestern Syria. (p. 242)

"... the weird connection that I've found linking Giza with ancient Canaan, and with the ancient Semitic people known in the Bible as the Canaanites." (p. 244)

"... he came across evidence of a Canaanite presence at Giza -- indeed, a long-term Canaanite settlement... " (p. 244)

"... numerous votive stele and other marks of respect to the Great Sphinx at Giza, inscribed and offered by members of this Canaanite community have been found." (p. 244; see also 245)

"... Baal, the Canaanite deity after whom Baalbek is named, also had a cult in Egypt..." (p. 246)

"Last but not least, there is the fact that Baalbek was renamed 'Heliopolis'..." (p. 246)

Quoted from the Coronet, 2016, paperback edition of the book.

Addition, July 1st:

"... the Phoenicians usually referred to themselves as Canaanites. Renowned for their seafaring abilities, and especially for their uncanny -- or perhaps one should say instead, precise and scientific -- navigational skills, they established ports all around the coasts of the Mediterranean..." (pp. 269-270)
