Rameses the Great - His Lost City

Rameses II, known as "The Great," built a wonderful city named after himself which he called Piramesse. 

Because so much had been written about the ancient town, archeologists believed it would be easy to uncover.  But the capital, once situated along the Nile, was missing.

This is the story of Piramesse ... and how it was relocated.
