    The visit will take place on Wednesday morning in the United Nations Protected Area in Nicosia and will be attended by the three CMP members.

    Members of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political parties will watch a CMP documentary and then visit the CMP Anthropological Laboratory, which analyses exhumed remains of missing persons before bone samples are sent to the Cyprus Institute for Neurology and Genetics Laboratory of Forensic Genetics for DNA identification.

    [04] ANCIENT EGYPT - DOCUMENTARY

    When the Egyptians Sailed on the Red Sea is the name of the internationally acclaimed documentary to be screened for the first time in Cyprus at the University of Cyprus (UCY) on Monday.

    Through the eyes of director St&#233;phane B&#233;goin viewers will experience the design and construction of an 18th Dynasty Egyptian trading ship replica and its experimental voyage on the Red Sea.

    According to a joint UCY and Thetis Foundation announcement University of Florida maritime archaeologist Cheryl Ward coordinated the design and construction of a replica of an 18th Dynasty Egyptian trading ship within the framework of the research programme Min of the Desert.

    Once construction was completed, Ward and her team sailed on the Red Sea in an experimental voyage just like Hatshepsuts Egyptian fleet did in search of the mythical land of Punt, some 3,500 years ago.
