🔴The Khufu Ship 🔴 . ⚫The intact full-size ship from Ancient Egypt was sealed into a pit at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Giza from around 2500 BCE(4500 years old). ⚫Khufu's ship is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved ships from antiquity ; It measures 43.6 m (143 ft) long and 5.9 m (19.5 ft) wide. ⚫It was 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. ⚫The history and function of the ship are not precisely known , it is known as a "solar barge" a ritual ship that carry the deceased king with the sun god "Ra" across the heavens. ⚫However, it bears some signs of having been used in water and it is possible that the ship was either a funerary "barge" used to carry the king's embalmed body from Memphis to Giza, or even that Khufu himself used it as a "pilgrimage ship" to visit holy places then it was then buried for him to use in the afterlife. . .

🔴The Cave of Altamira🔴 . ⚫It is famous for prehistoric parietal cave art featuring charcoal drawings and polychrome paintings. ⚫The cave is located near the historic town of Santillana del Mar in Cantabria, Spain. ⚫The earliest paintings were applied during the Upper Paleolithic, around 36,000 years ago. ⚫The site was only discovered in 1868 by Modesto Cubillas. ⚫The cave is approximately 1,000 m (3,280.84 ft) meters long and consists of a series of twisting passages and chambers. The main passage varies from two to six meters in height. ⚫The cave can be divided into three sections: the entrance, the great room or polychrome room and the gallery. ⚫The entrance is the part where people used to live; archaeologists found there remains of animals bones, ashes belonging to continuous fireplaces and flint objects such as knives and axes, indicating human activity in this part of the cave. ⚫Most of the paintings and engravings of Altamira, ranging from animals to hands, are located in the polychrome room. ⚫Altamira was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985. ⚫Nowadays, Altamira cave is closed to the public due to its preservation problems. . .
