Paul Lipke : The Royal Ship of Cheops. - [A Retrospective Account of the Discovery, Restoration and Reconstruction. Based on Interviews with Hag Ahmed Youssef Moustafa]. - Oxford : B.A.R., 1984. - XII, 139 p., fig., ill. - [National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. - Archaeological Series, 9 = BAR International Series, 225]. - ISBN : 0-86054-293-9. - [PDF - 48,76 MB] :
This book on the famous funerary boat of Cheops, which was discovered in 1954 near the Great Pyramid, has been written by an expert in boat building and is based on the interviews he had with Hag Ahmed Youssef Moustafa, who directed the excavation of the ship's timbers, their restoration and reconstruction. Unlike Nancy Jenkins's popular book on the subject, the only comprehensive work published so far, the present book is especially concerned with the technological aspects of the boat. The introduction contains a synopsis of the discovery, an enumeration of the principal personnel engaged in the excavation and subsequent restoration of the boat, and a description of the excavation of the covering stones. There follows a section dealing with the excavation of the boat itself. The procedures employed, the pit's contents, and the arrangement and identification of the finds are described in detail. The next section is devoted to the remarkable condition of the ship's timbers and includes tables indicating the extent of damage of each timber. Then the author discusses the conservation and the restoration techniques employed. The next section treats the reconstruction of the boat, in which several stages can be distinguished. There follows a list of all records (most of them unpublished) relating to the work undertaken since the discovery of the boat and the details of its construction. After this the author discusses the construction of the boat. All kinds of technical data are provided. In the final section the purpose and usage of the boat are considered. Bibliography and glossary at the end.

Greetings, Lutz.
