KING SAHURE boat
This typical vessel was used during the reign of
Pharaoh Sahure over 4,400 years ago. Egypt's
expanding interests in trade goods inspired the Egyptians to
build suitable ships for navigation of the open sea.
Ship builders of that era did not use pegs
(treenails) or metal fasteners, but relied on rope
to keep their ships assembled. Planks and the
superstructure were tightly tied and bound together
with rope binders. Joints and cracks in the
superstructure were sealed with pitch and bitumen.
