220. There's also Finkelstein and Silberman's "The Bible Unearthed"
"not a single campsite or sign of occupation from the time of Ramses II and his immediate predecessors and successors has even been identified in Sinai."

"The conclusion--that the Exodus did not happen at the time and in the manner described in the Bible--seems irrefutable."

Double hmm!

Even William Dever, who holds the position that archaeology generally supports the Bible, wrote in Recent Archaeological Discoveries and Biblical Research that
"Absolutely no trace of Moses, or indeed of any Israelite presence in Egypt, has ever turned up. Of the Exodus and the wandering in the wilderness--events so crucial in the Biblical recitation of the 'mighty acts of God'--we have no evidence whatsoever"
