Hatshepsut (Part III) & The Punt Expedition. In 1488-1487 BCE, Egypt's reigning Queen-King Maat-ka-Re Hatshepsut launches her most famous project. Returning to the glory days of previous kings, she funds an expedition south, down the Red Sea coast, to the wonderful land of Punt. We journey to Punt, meet the locals, and see how it all fits into Hatshepsut's grand personal narrative.
