      Harbor of the Pharaohs to the Land of Punt: Excavations at Mersa/Wadi Gawasis 2001-2011

      Dr. Kathryn Bard, Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at Boston University, will discuss her excavations at the Middle Kingdom (ca. 1800 BC) harbor at Mersa/Wadi Gawasis on the Red Sea where the team uncovered evidence of shrines aligned along the sea shore and harbor facilities farther inland, including eight man-made caves located above an ancient lagoon that extended considerably inland from the present-day shoreline.
