Archaeologists Discover 3,000-Year-Old Port in Egypt

A 3,000-year-old port that dates back to the 18th dynasty, which ruled between 1543 and 1292 B.C., has been discovered in Egypt.

The Antiquities Ministry said that the port, located near the city of Aswan, was used to transport stones for the building of temples and obelisks.

Director of the Aswan and Nubia antiquities area, Abdel-Moneim Said, noted that the rocks excavated at the site were used in the construction of the ancient Egyptian temples at Karnak and Kom Ombo.
