De tweede boot van Cheops wordt bovengehaald

Op de website van Zahi Hawass, 23/06/11:
http://www.drhawass.com/blog/uncovering ... amid-today

This morning I attended the uncovering of the second solar boat pit at Giza with Professor Sakuji Yoshimura, Director of the Waseda University Mission Team in Egypt. We revealed the delicate wooden boat in the pit and also had a surprise archaeological discovery!
...
The first stone block, out of a total of 41, was carefully lifted this morning. To give you some idea of the scale of the blocks, the biggest one measures 1m wide by 4.10m lengthways and weights 16 tons.
...
Yesterday, the Egyptian and Japanese teams conducted an experiment to clean the fillings around the sides of the covering stones. During this procedure they revealed a cartouche for King Khufu and beside it was the name of the crown prince Djedefre, without cartouche. This is a very great discovery. It is the second cartouche of the great King Khufu to be found in the pyramid complex – the first was inside the Great Pyramid – and it proves to us that this boat was constructed during the time of King Khufu. The restored solar boat in the Solar Boat Museum lay in a boat pit displaying a mason’s mark of a cartouche for Djedefre – Khufu’s successor. It was therefore constructed at a later date, after the death of King Khufu when Djedefre became king.
...
The boat will be reconstructed and put on display in a special building designed specifically for the boat at the Grand Egyptian Museum.

Hier staat dat laatste echter iets anders beschreven:

Upon completion of the restoration, the boat will be erected near the entrance gate to the Pyramids Plateau, on the Cairo-Fayoum road, Hawass told reporters. The first boat, on the other hand, will be moved from its current site, beside Khufu's Pyramid to the Grand Egyptian Museum, currently under construction.

Nog twee berichten hierover.
Eender over welke fase van onderzoek, redding en reconstructie het nu gaat (zie de persberichten hieronder), de eindbestemming van de boot wordt hier anders vermeld dan eerder. (zie mijn eerste bericht hierboven)
Werd het museum van de eerste boot ongeschikt geacht voor verder gebruik? Zie: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2707
Maar kan de eerste boot wel tegen afbraak, transport en opbouw? Of een unieke gelegenheid om restauraties uit te voeren?

2nd phase of Khufu solar boat project to begin Monday
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/34691.aspx
The first phase of the project, carried out two years ago, assessed the area surrounding the second boat pit with the use of topographical radar surveys. A large hangar has since been built over the second pit, with a smaller hangar erected inside to cover the top of the boat itself.
...
the first phase had also included the raising of 41 stone blocks that had covered the pit containing Khufu's second solar boat for the last 4,500 years.
...
Ali El-Asfar, head of operations at the Giza Plateau, said that the Japanese team had also found that water had leaked from the nearby museum housing the first solar boat. The leak, they noted, had adversely affected some of the boat's wood, making it necessary to quickly wrap up the analysis phase and restore the water-damaged wood.

The archaeological team took samples Monday from King Khufu’s second solar boat to determine the exact causes of its deterioration and the best restoration methods
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/35047.aspx
In the end, the ship will be set on display next to the first one, currently exhibited in a separate museum next to the pyramids.
...
Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said that this is the third phase of the restoration of Khufu’s second solar boat. The first was enacted in 1992, when the Japanese government and a Japanese scientific and archaeological team from Waseda University offered a grant of $10 million to unearth, restore, reassemble and put the boat on display.

The second phase opened in mid-2011 when the Egyptian-Japanese team began to lift the 41 blocks that the boat was buried under. Each stone block weights 16 tonnes.

Now the team will work around the clock to get samples and analysis, said Ali El-Asfar, the director of the Giza plateau monuments exhibition, to Ahram Online.

Bij een routineschoonmaak in 1954 ontdekte de Egyptoloog Kamal el Mallakh twee houten begrafenisboten.
In juni 2011 begon een Japanees team met het verwijderen van 41 oude stenen platen (4 meter lang en 14 ton per plaat) die de tweede boot overdekten.
Uiteindelijk werd gestart met de opgraving van de tweede boot in juni 2013.
Egyptologen zijn ervan overtuigd dat er in situ minstens vijf verschillende schepen werden begraven. Sommige kuilen werden echter leeg teruggevonden.
Mogelijk waren er vier boten bedoeld om de koning te laten uitvaren naar de vier windstreken. De vijfde boot werd dan gebruikt voor de verplaatsing van het lichaam naar de dodenplaats.
Egyptologen opteren eerder voor een spirituele betekenis ondanks de vaststelling dat er slijtage werd vastgesteld die niet enkel te wijten is aan de ouderdom van de vaartuigen.

Thirty wooden beams of Khufu's second solar boat arrive to the GEM

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/133281.aspx
A collection of 30 wooden beams of King Khufu’s second solar boat have arrived to the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) after restoration. The new batch is to be stored in the museum galleries for reconstruction and later display.
He explained that the beams were inside the pit since it was first discovered in 1954 by Egyptian archaeologists Kamal Al-Mallakh and Zaki Nour during routine cleaning on the southern side of Khufu’s Great Pyramid.
Al-Mallakh then removed the timbers, oars and beams of the first solar boat and left the second one in situ until 2009 when a Japanese scientific and archaeological team from Waseda University headed by Sakuji Yoshimura offered to remove the boat from the pit, restore and reassemble it, and put it on show to the public.
Eissa Zidan, restoration director at the GEM, explained that Japanese and Egyptian restorers removed 468 wooden pieces of the second boat from the pit and to date have restored 342 pieces according to the latest scientific methods.
Yoshimura said that the project would continue until 2018, when reconstruction of the second solar boat will begin. He added that recent restoration work was in the way of “first aid,” and that complete restoration would be done when the boat is reconstructed.

Lab opens at Egypt's pyramids to restore pharaonic boat

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/261853.aspx
Egypt is inaugurating its largest on-site antiquities laboratory, to restore the second ceremonial boat of Pharaoh Cheops, known for building the largest of Egypt's iconic pyramids.
The project, funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency and the Higashi Nippon International University, is set to complete the initial phase of repairs of the 4,500-year-old vessel by 2020.
Eissa Zeidan, head of the project's Egyptian restoration team, told The Associated Press that the lab, at the site of the Giza pyramids, was necessary for some of the boat's 1,264 pieces, which are too fragile or large to move.
