Re: Antic worlds
In front of the pyramid of khufu, scintists found two holes with each inside it, one solar boat...



The Khufu ship is an intact full-size vessel from Ancient Egypt (the ship was one of two rediscovered in 1954) that was sealed into a pit in the Giza pyramid complex at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Giza around 2500 BC.
The ship is now preserved in the Giza Solar boat museum. The ship was almost certainly built for Khufu (King Cheops), the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Egypt.
Like other buried Ancient Egyptian ships, it was apparently part of the extensive grave goods intended for use in the afterlife, and contained no bodies, unlike northern European ship burials.

Khufu's ship is one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved vessels from antiquity.
It measures 43.6 m (143 ft) long and 5.9 m (19.5 ft) wide.
It was thus identified as the world's oldest intact ship and has been described as "a masterpiece of woodcraft" that could sail today if put into water, lake and river.
However, the vessel may not have been designed for sailing, as there is no rigging, or for paddling, as there is no room...
