Building Pharaoh's Ship

PBS's NOVA documents the building of a 4000 year old style vessel from drawings found in Egyptian ruins.  The ship is held together only by mortise and tenon joints. Ships such as these were thought to make 1600 mile round trip journeys on the Red Sea.  You can watch the show online.
