Egypt’s interests extended far beyond its borders, most famously with civilisations of the Mediterranean and Near East, and south to Nubia. Its least appreciated connections are to the south-east through the Red Sea, to and past Punt and by Roman times reaching as far as the eastern coast of modern India. This lecture will outline ancient Egypt’s interests and relations in this direction from the Old Kingdom through the Roman period.
