It has been alleged that a team of underwater archaeologists has discovered the remains of a large Egyptian Army from the 14th century BC, at the bottom of the Gulf of Suez. This location is about 1.5 kilometers offshore from the modern city of Ras Gharib. This news was announced by Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry.
RED SEA CROSSING
The team was originally searching for the remains of ancient ships and artifacts related to the Stone Age and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea area, but instead, they stumbled upon a gigantic mass of human bones that had darkened over time.
The scientists were led by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader who was associated with Cairo University’s Faculty of Archaeology. This university’s archaeology department has allegedly already discovered over 400 different skeletons, hundreds of weapons and armors and two war chariots, which were scattered over an area of about 200 square meters.
It is believed that there could be over 5000 bodies that could be dispersed over a larger area, which indicates a large army most likely perished on this site.
Professor Gader and company also found a unique weapon near a war chariot that is believed to have held serious importance given its looks. The bodies seemed to have died on dry ground at the time and the position of the bodies indicate that they may have died from a tidal wave or a mudslide. It is believed that the bodies were in such a great number that it was most likely an army.
REMAINS OF EGYPTIAN ARMY FROM THE BIBLICAL EXODUS
This is connected to the book of Exodus in the Bible and the famous Red Sea Crossing during the times of Pharaoh. This find shows that an Egyptian Army was destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea.
This finding ultimately shows that the book of Exodus was more than an interesting story, but a reality that had occurred at one time in the BC timeline.
