making of a reconstruction.  This is an OK BBC documentary about Hatshepsut's expedition to the Land of Punt, as depicted in the bas-reliefs at Deir el-Bahri, although too long is spent on the . It's airing now as I write but is also repeated several times over the next few days.

There's good coverage of the maritime abilities and ship building skills of the early New Kingdom.

Thanks for the heads- up Kate. I loved this video. Experimental Archaeology (i think it is known as) is fascinating. To go from a 2dimentional picture to a full size Hatshepsut boat is great to see. A very inspirational documentary. Please let us know when you come accross any more of these BBCi Player videos. Thanks and Happy New Year Kate
