Egyptian Transport -The need to get cedar and ebony wood, myrrh and a particular golden alloy, called “electrum”, pushed the Egyptians to build suitable ships for navigation on the open sea, so that they could reach Syria or cross the Red Sea. A bas-relief discovered in the King Sahure temple allowed the reconstruction of this model, made enchanting by the particular construction of the hull.
