Rosetta traditional shipbuilding fieldwork

Home / News / Rosetta traditional shipbuilding fieldwork
On Saturday 21-01-2017, as a part of the MA students’ fieldwork, a visit was carried out to a traditional shipyard in Rosetta, east of Alexandria. During that visit, students were able to practice the use of several replicas of ancient boat building tools and to explore the different techniques used by traditional boat builders.   
It was at this particular shipyard that a replica of a seagoing Ancient Egyptian Ship was built in 2008 as part of the experimental archaeology “Min of the Desert”.
