Well. Just this one item so far. Diddly going on today, archaeology-wise.
Egyptian boats Remains of ancient Egyptian seafaring ships discovered
The first remains of ancient Egyptian seagoing ships ever to be recovered have been found in two caves on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, according to a team at Boston University in the US.
The team also found fragments of pottery at the site, which could help resolve controversies about the extent of ancient Egyptian trade voyages. But details of the newly disclosed finds remain sketchy.
Kathryn Bard, who co-led the dig with Italian archaeologists in December 2004, has revealed to the Boston University weekly community newsletter that the team found a range of items – including timbers and riggings – inside the man-made caves, located at the coastal Pharaonic site of Wadi Gawasis.
