Underwater Archaeology: Excavating the Nile with Dr Hawass

Dr Zahi Hawass examines some of the finds being excavated from the bottom of the River Nile near Aswan, explaining that the river was used as a trade route, with boats carrying various materials and goods along the Nile. Sometimes, boats would sink and with them the goods they carried, which is what is being excavated. Dr Hawass explains that archaeological discoveries are not only found in the desert sands, but also in the waters of the river.
