Boats in Sharm Museum

Sharm el Sheikh Museum - Museums

2 Cedar Wood Boats from a collection of 6 which were located at the Dahshur Pyramid Complex of Pharaoh Senusret III. These were carved and erected during the Pharaoh’s reign of the 12th Dynasty in the Middle Kingdom Period. Although we cannot be sure, these boats were probably used in his Funeral and then purposed to be reused by Pharaoh as his Solar Barques to allow the deceased Pharaoh to join the Afterlife and be reborn like the Sun God Ra each day
