LITTLE HISTORY OF THE EGYPTIAN GALLEYS

Ancient Egypt did not have much of a naval tradition although it is true that it had a river fleet that was able to navigate the most important and famous river in the country: the Nile. The Nile provided the source of life for the Egyptians. All that changed somewhat with the arrival of the New Kingdom when it received external maritime threats.

Pharaoh Ramses III (1184-1153 BCE) decided to build war vessels that managed to stop the incursions: the Egyptian galleys. In this way, Egypt let its enemies see that it could already defend itself against invaders coming from the sea, as in the well-known Battle of the Delta, which took place in 1177 BCE.

The pharaohs used the war galleys in all their conflicts and also for other transportation purposes. Now Artesania Latina present to you a wooden model for kids of Cleopatra’s Galley. Guaranteed entertainment for the little ones in the house as well as for their parents and grandparents.

While this kit is intended for young builders we do recommend adult supervision while working with paint and glue.
