When you're as badass as King Ramses III, you don't just stick to Egypt – you leave your mark wherever your feet may take you. Just yesterday, Saudi Arabian archaeologists discovered his signature hieroglyphic inscription on a fixed rock in Tayma Oasis in northern Saudi Arabia. They also found a direct commercial route linking the Nile Valley with Tayma, which was used during the reign of Ramses III in the 12th century B.C. by Egyptian convoys who traveled to purchase precious goods such as copper, gold, and silver. This route passes from the Nile Valley into the port of Alqulzm, Suez, where a temple of King Ramses III is located.
