“The Mystery of the Land of Punt Unraveled”, written by Axmed Ibrahim Awale, contains possible evidences and persuasive arguments to cause a stir among historians (Egyptologists in particular). It uncovers and exposes archeological findings in an area that has never been thought to have historical significance. This place where these findings are based is Hargeysa, the capital of Somaliland. While the information in this book shall mark a bold step that probably could bring the long standing argument on the location of the mysterious Land of Punt to a close by pinpointing it on the Somali peninsula, it also generates new hypotheses on, among other things, the origin of ancient Egyptians, and to some extent the cradle of the Afro-Asiatic family of languages and the dispersal of its speakers. Sadiya Musa chaired the event and Abdirahman Yusuf Artan read the book to provide an overview os salient features, then the author was given the floor to answer question and expand his finding. The book was a stir among participants of the event.
