Ancient Egyptian Anchors and the Sea


Pierced stones, many identified as anchors, are found on many ancient sites in and around the Mediterranean, although they are notoriously difficult to date due to their frequent lack of archaeological context and attribution to a particular site, locale or people. This short volume presents a catalogue of more than 200 anchors from the site of Marsa Matruh on the north coast of Africa, discussed within the context of Egyptian anchors found elsewhere, and within our current knowledge of Egyptian seafaring.
