Obzor osnovnykh konstruktivnykh osobennostei drevneegipetskikh korablei [An overview of major constructional features of Ancient Egyptian ships]

Ancient Egyptian shipbuilding is ingenious and has a very long history. The purpose of this article is to present major features of Ancient Egyptian shipbuilding and to consider in detail those of them that were not repeated elsewhere in the world. These technical solutions prove the original way of thinking and inventiveness of Ancient Egyptian shipbuilders. Current review is limited by the Late Period (664–332 BC) as at this time the ingenious ships were gradually replaced by the types of foreign origin. New archaeological finds and publications allow reconsidering certain aspects of Ancient Egyptian shipbuilding.
