Herodotus Was Right All Along
The Ancient Greek historian, Herodotus, wrote about an Egyptian boat called a baris, over 1500 years ago. He described a cargo boat constructed like brickwork, lined with papyrus, with a hole in the keel for the rudder. A 2500 year-old ship was discovered sunken in the Nile, which matches Herodotus’s description. He was finally proved right!
