Archaeologists excavating near Tel el-Kedwa in the North Sinai have unearthed a group of wells on the famous Way of Horus road. They believe the wells were built before the reign of Seti I, but were later deliberately filled in so that Persians, who invaded in 525 BC could not use them. Only one well was not filled in, and it was constructed in an unconventional way, dug into yellow sand with 1-meter pottery rings placed on top of each other. Pottery vessels, which were discovered at the well, date to the 26th Dynasty, also known as the Saite period. The Way of Horus was an ancient road lined with military fortresses that connected Egypt and Canaan. It is referred to in the Bible as the “way of the land of the Philistines.” Exodus 13:17 reads, “When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. For God said, "Lest the people change their minds when they see war and return to Egypt."
