Fingerprints of the Gods p. 280-281
Made of cedarwood, the beautiful ship in the museum was still in perfect condition 4500 years after it had been built. With a displacement of around 40 tons, its design was particularly thought-provoking, incorporating, in the words of one expert all the sea-going ship's characteristic properties, with prow and stern soaring upward, higher than in a Viking ship, to ride out the breakers and high seas, not to contend with the little ripples of the Nile

I am not sure exactly how these ships were dated and by whom, however, if dated correctly, these ships would have been present at the very beginning of Egypt's 3000-year history.
I understand that grandeur was a common attribute of the Pharoah's displays of power, but I still have to ask the same question as Graham Hancock...Why were these grand ships constructed, and possibly more importantly, if not built by the Ancient Egyptians - them by whom?
