finally had a chance to do a fast reflip through Wilkinson's "Genesis of the Pharaohs"

The Wadi Hammamat was definitely wetter in the predynastic and the key role played by boats is inarguable,

When I first looked at your image I "saw' a sophisticated Harbour complex.

Unfortunately the book focus's on the reliefs and there is not much commentary on the how watery the area was, or much reference to extant structural remains.

But I "SEE" a harbour complex.
