ancient Egyptian ships

the below pictured ship was not just a raft built from
a few tree trunks , it is called a masterpiece of woodcraft

it was built over 4,500 years ago and it contains evidence
of an axel and the usage of a lever as shown in the
boat oars.

I would highly doubt that the ancient Egyptians did not
also have water wheeled powered grain mills and water irrigation systems in place to bring water to the farm lands
when the niles water level was low , not to mention water
power used to grind and cut stone.

this is a luxury ship that was used to travel up and down
on the nile river by the pharaoh accompanied by many other
ships that carried his armed guards , pharaohs wouldn't travel
without their security forces.

and I doubt that he would have them running along the banks
keeping up with his ship as it sailed up and down the nile.

so the Egyptians being a clever peoples would have also
traded with other peoples using barges or even larger
ships around the mediterranean area and up and down the nile
river.

lifting trade goods from a barge and placing them on a
pier would require ropes and pulleys and a pulley has a
wheel inside it.

I have got to admit that I am amazed how the archeologist
have painted the Egyptians as being really stupid people
when the ancestors of the archeologist were probably trying
to figure out where their next meal was coming from while
the ancient Egyptians already had their next meal stored away
or it was being transported to them in ships.

the ancient Egyptians were highly advanced over the rest
of the world without a doubt.

but still the jealous rest of the world maintains that
the ancient Egyptians were pretty much dumb idiots.

Quote:

The Khufu ship is an intact full-size vessel from Ancient Egypt that was sealed into a pit in the Giza pyramid complex at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Giza around 2500 BC. It was thus identified as the world's oldest intact ship
and has been described as "a masterpiece of woodcraft" that could sail today if put into water.[3] The Khufu ship is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved vessels from antiquity.
It measures 43.6 m (143 ft) long and 5.9 m (19.5 ft) wide.
