This presentation is a continuation of "The Riddle of the Raamseses" which discusses the evidence surrounding naming Pharoah Raamsses as the Pharaoh of the Exodus. Here I show that the capital city built by Raamses was in P-Raamsses (identified as today's Qantir,) while the Israelites were living in Raamses, identified as Old Avaris. Although the two cities were quit close, the proximity of Avaris/Raamses to the water lends more credence to that being the site the pharaoh's daughter was bathing.
