Life in a port city: Roderick Geerts writes a blog post about the ancient port of Berenike

Roderick Geerts, a PhD candidate of the Faculty of Archaeology in Leiden, takes us on a short journey through the rich history of the Red Sea port of Berenike in Egypt.

The blog post provides an overview of the excavation history, archaeological finds and valuable inscriptions, revealing a story about Berenike and its people and how they lived and traded in this port city. The post was written within the LDE PortCityFutures research programme, which investigates the evolving socio-spatial conditions, use and design of port city regions.
