Archaeology of the Exodus
The day after Passover the NY Times has a piece discussing the lack of archaeological evidence for the Israelites' exodus from Egypt. The report focuses on the archaeology of an Egyptian border fort in the Sinai that dates to the right time period.
As the article points out, I'm not surprised that there is no archaeological evidence for the parting of the Red Sea. I'm also not surprised that Egyptian archaeologists don't seem real eager to find confirmation of Hebrew scripture.
