In pictures: Egypt pharaoh’s ‘solar boat’ moved to Giza museum

An impressive ancient Egyptian boat from the time of the pharaohs has been transported to its new home at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza due to open this year near the Pyramids

Heavy machinery was used to move the wooden boat to its new permanent display home
The theory is that the ship – described as a solar boat – was built to allow the pharaoh to sail across the skies after his death
It was unearthed in the Great Pyramid in Giza, greater Cairo, which was itself constructed by King Khufu
The vessel is described by Egyptian officials as “the largest and oldest” object made of wood in human history
King Khufu – who is believed to have reigned between 2,589-2,566 BC – was known to the the ancient Greeks as Cheops
