The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced that a team of underwater archaeologists had discovered the remains of a large Egyptian army of the fourteenth century BC, in the Gulf of Suez, 1.5 km from the coast of the modern city. By Ras Gharib
The team was looking for ancient ships and artifacts related to the Stone Age and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea region, when it stumbled upon a giant mass of human bones blackened by years of immersion.
Led by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader, who are linked to the Faculty of Archeology at the University of Cairo, they have recovered more than 400 different skeletons, as well as hundreds of weapons and pieces of armor, also the remains of two cars.
It is estimated that more than 5,000 skeletons could be scattered over a larger area, suggesting that a large army was in place.
Many clues led Master Gader to conclude that the bodies may be related to the famous episode of Exodus.
The old soldier seemed to have died in the dry land, since there are no traces of ships that are in the area.
The positions of the bodies and the fact that they were stopped in a large amount of clay and rock, implies that they could have died in a landslide or a tsunami.
This magnificent sheet of an Egyptian khopesh was undoubtedly the weapon of a main character.
It was found near the remains of a richly decorated chariot, suggesting that it might have belonged to a prince or nobleman.
The number of corpses suggests that a large ancient army perished on the site dramatically, both seem to corroborate the biblical version of the Red Sea crossing, when the army of the Egyptian pharaoh was destroyed when the Jewish people had passed through the Red Sea.
It shows that a great Egyptian army was destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea during the reign of Akhenaten. The famous biblical story of “crossing the Red Sea” was discredited by most scholars and historians.
This surprising discovery provides undeniable scientific proof that one of the most famous episodes of the Old Testament is really based on a historical event. What do you think? Do not forget to share information.
