The narrative of the Exodus preserves various facets of collective memory. The memories of Egyptian slavery, of devastating plagues, and of the figure of Moses can be correlated in various ways with historical effects during the Egyptian Empire in Canaan. The figure of Moses serves as a unifying element in these stories, and may derive from a dimly perceived historical figure.
