>New Inscriptions Mention Seti I and Ramses II

>According to a news release, Egyptian archaeologists have discovered an ancient fortress which served as the ancient headquarters of the Pharaonic army beginning in 1570 B.C. The place has been identified with the ancient city of Tharu, a place located in the Sinai peninsula.

Among the artefacts discovered in the fortress were inscriptions mentioning the names of three Pharaohs: Tuthmosis II, who ruled Egypt from about 1512 B.C. and who built one of the military installations, Seti I, and Ramses II, two Pharaohs who ruled Egypt from 1318 to 1237 B.C.
