Archaeology of the Red Sea

I have finished grading the exams for my lecture class “Archaeology of the Red Sea” and I am happy to say everyone passed and most did exceptionally well. I am proud of my students!

Lectures in the class included:
Early Egyptian Seafaring
How the Red Sea was viewed in Antiquity
Phoenicians and Israelites
South Arabia, Bronze Age and the Ptolemaic Period
The Monsoons
The Periplus of the Erythraean Sea
Red Sea Navigation
Leuce Come
Myos Hormos
Berenike in the Ptolemaic and Roman Eras
Archaeology and Shipwrecks of the Red Sea

It was a fun course to teach!
