(Fox News) – An Egyptian archaeological mission has unearthed the ancient remnants of a 2,600-year-old military castle, meaning it dates back nearly
three millennia.

Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities said in a Facebook post, “The castle was
found in the North Sinai province”.
The government agency said that they
were able to find the North-East Corner Tower and the remains of the South-
East Corner Tower, as well as the extension of the south wall. The castle
was dated to the Psamtik era, which ran from 664 to 610 B.C.

(Fox News) – Alabama historical officials announced Wednesday,
researchers have located the remains (above) of the last known
ship to have brought slaves to the U.S. from West Africa.

The Alabama Historical Commission confirmed that the Gulf
schooner Clotilda was identified and verified after months of assessment.

waters around Mobile have concealed the final destination of
the Gulf Schooner Clotilda.”
