Home / Oman 39

I found many petrified (or fossilized) ancient ships in Oman. Look closely at the patterns in the rock formations, and you can make out some of the wood ship construction techniques. I' ll be searching throughout the world for more petrified ships to image and catalog. I'll also attempt to draw a ship layout with some of the more common assembly configurations I'm seeing. You can look at a document about petrified wood in this album, too.
