Archaeologists digging at Ain Sokhna about 120 km east of Cairo on the Red Sea coast have found the remains of an ancient city dating from the Middle Kingdom (c. 2040-1640 BC), local news sources have said. The Egyptian-French team led by French archaeologist George Castel has uncovered a series of storage areas and narrow alleyways enclosed within a 600-sqm rectangular building containing a single room.

Archaeologists have been working at the site in the resort city since 1999.
