Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean XXVI/2, Special Studies, Research on the Red Sea, Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw 2017

PAM XXVI/2 Special Studies, volume Research on the Red Sea brings together
contributions by several Polish researchers and their international associates,
presenting the results of their studies in two archaeological projects carried out
by the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology University of Warsaw:
in Egyptian Berenike since 2008 and in Aynuna (presumed Leuke Kome) on
the Saudi Arabian side since 2014. in the mid 1st century AD, the two harbors
were listed by a ship captain in his sailing guidebook Periplus Marls Erythraei
together with useful trading instructions; today, they are part of international
investigations aimed at reconstructing the landscapes and cityscapes, also
cultural and historical, of these two important maritime and commercial centers.
