The tale of an extraordinary human and scientific adventure. An adventure in which we are plunged into the world of the Egyptians, 3.500 years ago.
On the walls of the Deir el-Bahari temple in Luxor, a certain bas-relief has particularly intrigued Egyptologists. It depicts 5 boats setting sail for the distant land of Punt, ordered by their queen, the powerful Hatshepsut. Could the Egyptians have also been a great sea-faring people?
To test this theory, a team of archaeologists decided to research the matter by building a boat identical to the ones the Egyptians had made.
