Penn archaeologist discovers ancient Egyptian boat in middle of desert

    Penn archaeologist discovers ancient Egyptian boat in middle of desert | Penn Current
    Wegner says including a boat at a king's final resting spot is a long-held tradition that ended not long after Senwosret III's reign, though researchers don't fully understand why. He's hoping continued work at Abydos, including the excavation of nearby chambers that likely held other ceremonial equipment, can provide at least some additional context.
