 this programme was on channel four on sunday 24/03/19. what a fantastic find, these boats are 4,000 years old. well worth watching on catchup.    I am now preparing my own tomb now for all my model boats to come with me lol! lol! on my next journey don't no if they will last that long


This is one of eighteen model boats that were found in the treasury of the tomb of King Tutankhamun.

The fleet was to be used by the king on his journey beyond the grave and consequently the boats were all facing west to indicate the direction of travel.

This boat is fitted with sails and shrouds and has a central cabin and a housing at either end decorated with images of a bull and a sphinx.

This type of boat was used to make pilgrimages to the holy city of Abydos, the cult center of the god Osiris.
