Abydos Royal Enclosures
Francesco Raffaele ^ | March, 4-7, 2003 | Francesco Raffaele

Another important discovery by David O'Connor was the fleet of 14 boats found out of the E side of the Shunet ez-Zebib (yet probably earlier in date than it). These were housed in mudbrick casing (white washed) and probably poles/ pennants were inserted in this casing; a boulder perhaps symbolized their anchors. The length of the structures varied from nearly 20 to 27m. In one of the boats seal impressions were found (no royal name, but Early First Dynasty in style) which haven't been published yet.
