Mr. Hugh Nicholson senior geologist, in bp Egypt, jointed the trip in addition to the members of the CUSC. The trip was proposed to show the 1st & 2nd year students different kinds of structures related to the Late Cretaceous fold belt and also the stratigraphic pattern and facies of these Late Cretaceous rocks. The trip involved also an archeological side represented by visiting the incomplete pyramid of the pharaoh Gidif Raa that located in this area. The pyramid is dated to the seventh dynasty.
