Modern technology has made it possible to recover relics, including statuary, jewellery, pediments, stone tablets and fragments of buildings, all lost for nearly two thousand years. Like a giant puzzle, the individual pieces have been fitted together and breathed new life into Egyptian history." "In photographs of the excavation process, Egypt's Sunken Treasures enables the reader to follow the fate of three ancient cities in the Nile Delta and to look at the valuable clues as to how their citizens lived and worshipped."--BOOK JACKET+-+7524886428583ocn421776214book20060.88Trésors engloutis d'Egypte : exposition présentée au Grand Palais à Paris du 9 décembre 2006 au 16 mars 2007Exhibition catalogsLa baie d'Aboukir a connu très tôt un essor important. Sa position géographique, à l'embouchure du Nil, lui a permis d'être un carrefour entre l'Egypte et les autres civilisations de la mer. Au VIIIe siècle après J.-C., une partie de la côte s'est effondrée et les vestiges ont été engloutis.
