The lecture will describe the context and latest results of current archaeological work at the Middle Kingdom border with Kush by the Uronarti Regional Archaeological Project. The focus of this work is the Mnnw fortress built by Senwosret III on the island of Uronarti in the late 12th Dynasty. The paper will demonstrate how new work by the Swansea-Brown team is changing our perception of the Egyptian presence and colonial relations in this desolate and remote border region.
