Researchers believe they have uncovered the first clear example of a treasure the ancient Egyptians brought home with them from the legendary, lost Land of Punt.
The ancient Egyptians wrote about the Land of Punt and depicted it as a prosperous location from 2450 BC to 1155 BC. They went to Punt, which they referred to as “God’s land,” to acquire gold, African blackwood, ebony, ivory, aromatic resins, wild animals, and slaves. One of the most famous artworks created about this location is the ‘Punt colonnade’ on Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el-Bahri , demonstrating that her people brought her myrrh trees, gold, ivory, panther skins, and apes back from Punt.
