Interactive video lesson plan for: In Ancient Egypt, Even Boats Had Their Own Tombs | National Geographic

Activity overview:

Archaeologists recently discovered an ancient Egyptian boat burial site dating more than 3,800 years old. National Geographic grantee and Penn Museum Associate Curator Josef Wegner and his team made the discovery while excavating the tomb of 12th Dynasty King Senwosret III, located in Abydos in southern Egypt. Discovered was a building that held 5 wooden planks that appear to have belonged to a 20 meter-long boat or its superstructure. The inner walls of the building were lined with 120 preserved drawings of boats of various sizes and details. At the entrance was a unique pile of pottery vessels, usually associated with ceremonial burials.
