Ruins of a large fortification were discovered in the 1990s at Ramesses on the south bank of the Pelusiac branch of the Nile River. It was active during the 18th Dynasty, ca. 1550-1300 BC. This would have been the location of the early chapters of Exodus. The river is seen in the lower part of the drawing.
