Antiquity News from Egypt Magazine
Summaries of the new finds at the Temple of Mut (the decorated lintel) and Marsa Gawasis:
"Evidence pointed to the use of Marsa Gawasis as the port for voyages to punt from the early Middle Kingdom to the early New Kingdom. The four man-made caves and the planks are the world's oldest maritime artifacts along with 21 wooden crates and a new stele with the five names of Amenemhat III."
See the above page for the full stories on both discoveries.
