Remains of 3,000-Year-Old Fortress Discovered in Egypt

In Egypt, authorities have uncovered the remains of a giant fortress called Tjaru (or Tharu/Tharo) discovered in July 2007 near the Suez Canal.

Covering an area of 31 acres, it is one of four fortress discovered so far along the "Horus Way, an ancient military road that connected 11 fortresses linking Egypt and Palestine" archaeologists said.

Artwork has also been found depicting several pharoahs, including Thutmose II (1492-1479 B.C.), Seti I (1294-1279 B.C.) and Ramses II (1279-1213 B.C.).
