Prof.Dr. Ahmed Mohamed Mahfouz. “The Land of Punt”

‘The Land of Punt’ presented by Prof.Dr. Ahmed Mohamed Mahfouz.

“Punt”is a geographical designation that appears in many ancient Egyptian texts, and the destination of many expeditions that came out of the Nile Valley. In fact,“Punt” represents a research problem that has occupied the minds of Egyptologists since the birth of this science at the beginning of the nineteenth century until the present day.

In its first part, this lecture reviewed the sources of research regarding this historical problem arranged in a historical order. Then, we tried to come up with a new vision in light of the results of recent archaeological excavations.
