Giza Pyramids - One of Pharaoh Khufu's solar barques (boat) which is believed to have been used to bring the mummy of the dead Pharaoh across the Nile to the valley temple, where it was brought up the causeway into the tomb chamber. The barques were then buried around the pyramid to provide transport for the pharoah in the next world. This boat was unearthed in 1954 and reassembled from 1200 pieces of wood.
