When the Egyptians Sailed the Red Sea — Aboard a replica of one of the boats chartered by Queen Hatshepsut in 1500 B.C., a scientific team undertook to repeat the extraordinary voyage that led the Egyptians to the rich and marvellous Land of Punt. Since the discovery of a bas-relief relating the journey of five boats chartered by Queen Hatshepsut to reach the storied far-off Land of Punt, archaeologists have never ceased conjecturing. Aboard a boat reconstructed according to studies and archaeological vestiges, a scientific team decided to make the voyage again, offering an original explanation of that naval epic and that period of Egypt, enlightened by the point of view of historians and archaeologists.
