The archaeology of Gaza
For those of you interested in areas outside Egypt, but which form a significant part of Egyptian history, this BBC article about the archaeology of Gaza may be of some interest: "For more than 3,500 years Gaza's history has been shaped by its location. It sits on the route linking North Africa with the greener lands of the Levant to the north. This made Gaza strategically important first to the Egyptian Pharaohs, and then to many others who sought to wield power in the region".
