Tomb 10A was discovered near the Nile River in a region known as Deir el-Bersha (The Secrets of Tomb 10A: Egypt 2000 BC 2009). It is the 4,000 year old resting place of a governor and his wife, both of whom ruled during the 11th or 12th dynasty and are named Djehutynakht. After the tomb was excavated in 1915 by archaeologists from Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (MFA), it was clear that what they had found was a consummate archetype of traditional Egyptian burial practices. One of the many grave goods found in the Djehutynakhts’ tomb was a fleet of 58 wooden model boats, which is the largest collection of model boats ever discovered in an Egyptian burial (Gansicke 2003: 185).
