Desert Boats: Predynastic and Pharaonic Era Rock-Art in Egypt's Central Eastern Desert: Distribution, dating and interpretationFrancis Lankester 2013 © BAR Publishing
The aim of this study is to explore the rock-art of the Central Eastern Desert and has three objectives: to outline the petroglyphs' distribution, to date them, and to explain who created them and for what purpose. It focuses in detail on the animal, human and boat images within the geographical and chronological context in which they were created; the landscape of what is now the Central Eastern Desert, and the Naqada, Pharaonic and Greco-Roman Egyptian cultures.
