Given your "expertise" of the Epic of Gilgamesh, I would have thought you would know that Gilgamesh, the king of Sumer in the tale, is historically dated to have ruled at a time potentially coinciding with the 4th Dynasty of Egypt.

And you know that my position is that the Epic of Gilgamesh is not an historical narrative and that Gilgamesh was never an actual character.

Madeleine was referring to real boats (you know the ones that float on water), not representations of boats, and these real boats were (according to experts) buried in boat pits.

In keeping with her rider not to introduce extraneous data, my response, though seemingly unappreciated, respected her request. My efforts were to stay on thread.

You, on the other hand, appear to have set out deliberately to convey to whomever, that my knowledge of boats in Egypt is somewhat lacking, with a flurry of unrelated images. Even the nice Dynasty 4 images in the last post from you do nothing to answer her query about the direction >> origin of the GP boats (which have not yet even have been proven to have existed).

You can take your wooden spoon and do whatever you like with it, but I don't find these exchanges to be productive and I am also somewhat underwhelmed with your state of ennui.
