   This book prepared by Nancy Jenkins is very well produced, it contains numerous beautiful pictures contributed by John Ross. The text of the publication presents a conventional view of the main purpose of the boat. In fact, not too many of the archaeological finds are of a really great interest to a wide public; most of them are interesting only to quite limited number of people whose life is dedicated to this science. However, from time to time some of the finds coming along stimulate the public interest, and one of such finds is the Royal Ship discovered in 1954 and presenting a very rare example of the well-reserved historical vessels with the condition allowing for the complete reconstruction. This vessel is more than four and half thousand years old; however, the hardware and timber parts were found to remain sufficiently intact. The completely reconstructed vessel is now resting a in special glass enclosure close to the Giza pyramids. And the story told by the author of this publication, which is interesting not only to the historians but also to the non-professional readers with general interest in the history, is very-well told allowing all categories of readers to learn something new and get aware of the facts that are commonly quite difficult to meet in most of the other books.
