The history of boats is intertwined with our own. Boats have carried explorers to new frontiers, waged fearsom navel battles, and even, according to ancient Egyptians, ferried the sun across the sky. Take to the open seas and learn about the ingenious watercraft that have helped shape our cultures, from the woven rafts of ancient Mesopotamia to the cutting-edge racing ships of today.
