Since ancient times mankind sought to construct a water passage through Egypt. An early canal was dug by hand to connect the Suez lakes with the Nile River. During Roman occupation this "Canal of the Pharaohs" flourished. Construction of the modern Suez Canal began in 1859 thanks to the vision and determination of Ferdinand De Lesseps. Before construction began, no one could know the detrimental effect it would have on the country.
