Wooden Ship Kits

EGYPTIAN TRANSPORTKit

 
Typical of the vessels used during the reign of King Sahure over 2005 years ago. The need to get cedar and ebony, myrrh and a particular golden alloy, called "electrum", pushed the Egyptians to build suitable ships for navigation on the open sea. They traded with Lebanon for cedar and travelled the length of the Red Sea to the Kingdom of Ethiopia for ebony. A bas reliefs discovered in the temple of King Sahure helped in the reconstruction of this model. Ship builders of that era did not use pegs (treenails) or metal fasteners, but relied on rope to keep their ships assembled. Planks, superstructure were tightly tied together.
