The Wadi el-Jarf project aims to study the various aspects of an Ancient Egyptian harbour on the Red Sea shore (Suez Gulf), that was built during the reign of Khufu, (ca 2600 BC). The site is spread over several locations – a storage area, made of caves cut in the mountain about 6 km to the west of the seashore, several camps and dwelling places, and a big L –shaped pier (200 x 200 m), oriented to the north, that was built directly on the sea, and which is probably the most ancient artificial sea harbour so far known in the world. The project started in 2011, and we excavated both the cave area, and different installations on the sea shore – including a camp, where 100 stone anchors from the Old kingdom were found in 2013. For the 2019 season, we plan to continue the excavation of the cave system and the study of a big square building (57 x 33 m) which is most probably an administrative building linked to the harbor – during the 2018 campaigns, level dated to the reign of Snefru, predecessor of Khufu, were found there, showing that the occupation of the site is slightly older than was thought before. We will also make some additional excavation on the camps where the anchors have been found, to have a more precise datation of its occupation (to try to identify some material dating before the reign of Khufu). In the meantime, a team of divers from the Ministry of Antiquities of Egypt will work in the harbour basin for the third season, if the authorization to work is given to them (last year, this operation had to be cancelled for security reasons at the last moment). The knowledge of all the components of this site – and of the connection that exist between them, will help to define more precisely the main features of an harbour at the beginning of the pharaonic era.
