Encyclopædia Britannica located Punt as follows:“In ancient Egyptian and Greek geography, the southern coast of the Red Sea,corresponding to modern coastal Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia .”/ In “The Making of Egypt” (1939). Petrie states that the Land of Punt was “sacred to the Egyptians as the source of their race”/


« Again the representations of the early Puntites, or Somali people, on the Egyptian monuments, show striking resemblances to the Egyptians themselves. » By Brian Brown New York: Brentano’s[1923]/

We can understand these resemblances through their ancestral history :
According to the historian Richard Pankhurst :”””The Egyptians sometimes called Punt land Ta-Netjeru, meaning “Land of the Gods,” and considered it their place of origin .” (Richard Pankhurst, The Ethiopian Borderlands:1997)

“The King Sahure (2458-2446 B.C.) from this Egyptian Old Kingdom, Dynasty V (2498-2491 B.C.), made a trade expedition to the Land of Punt . Egyptian ships also reached the shores of the land of Punt on the Somali coast to procure highly valued cargoes of myrrh, ebony and animals, among other goods. ” Text Reference: The UNESCO General History of Africa: Ancient Civilization of Africa, Vol, II, General History of Africa, G. Mokhtar, 1990, p 64-68

The greek historian Diodorus of Sicily in his book “Universal history “said that in 6th century before-J-Christ , because of a political crisis in Egypt and the euro-asiatics’s infiltrations in Egypt , more than 200 thousands of ancient-egyptians migrated in the south of the Nile by crossing Nubia-Ethiopia with their ships ,in the direction of North- Eastern of Africa (Now,Sudaan, Somalia ,Djibouti,Ethiopia …) ./ This last historical fact can explain why the somali language is a survived ancient-egyptian language ,according to the british linguist :”The language of ancient Egypt belonged to the Hamitic group;today, of course, the language of Egypt is a form of Arabic, but a descendant of the ancient Hamitic
language of Egypt, Coptic, survived untill about the fifteenth century, and is still used as the liturgical language of the Coptic Church.Surviving Hamitic languages are spoken across a large part of North Africa and include Somali.” (The english language ,A Historical Introduction,” by Charles Barber .)

Even, the genetic research prove that the somali DNA is originally from Egypt => Haplogroup E1b1b1a (V68) :19th century before J-Christ => Place of origin : Egypt and northern Soudan . Extract of the research : ( More recently, Tillmar et al. (2009) typed 147 males from Somalia for 12 Y-STR loci, and observed that 77% (113/147) had typical E1b1b1a1b haplotypes. This is currently the highest frequency of E1b1b1a1b found in any single sample population. Similarly, Hassan et al. (2008) in their study observed this to be the most common of the sub-clades of E-M78 found in Sudan, especially among the Beja, Masalit and Fur. The Beja, like Somalis, Sahos ,Afars and Oromos, speak an Afro-Asiatic language and live along the “corridor” from Egypt to the Horn of Africa.)
