Egyptian authorities say a team of researchers have found an ancient sea port dating 4,500 years ago about 112 miles south of Suez, Egypt. The port may have been used as a transfer point for copper from Sinai to the Nile valley, said Mohammed Ibrahim, the state minister of antiquities. Researchers also discovered hieroglyphic papyri, the oldest-known in the country, that detail the life of port workers.
