The Nile served as a great highway for trade with other parts of Africa. Queen Hatshepsut had sent an expedition to the mysterious land of Punt, which has now been identified with Lower Nubia. The reliefs on her temple tomb at Deir-el-Bahari show the ships returning, laden with trees that had been carefully tied as well as other riches Punt. This painting, which records an expedition by the Pharaoh Rameses II into Lower Nubia, shows the kind of good that the Egyptians wanted: exotic animals like lions, antelopes, giraffes, monkeys and ostriches, leopard skins, feather fans, ivory, gold, ebony for furniture, and possibly slaves.
