The oldest boat in the world, used for the funeral of King Cheops, was found dismantled and 'flat packed' in a granite trench covered with 31 stones, each weighing around 13 tons.  It was rebuilt (only one oar was damaged) and put on show at Giza.  It is believed to be 4,600 years old.  Currently a second, smaller boat is under reconstruction on the same site.
