A HISTORY OF SEAFARING - BASED ON UNDERWATER ARCHAEOLOGY edited by George F Bass

The sea has played a more vital role in shaping the destinies of man than any other single factor in our history. Long before there were shepherds and farmers, men were building ships to sail the oceans which cover nearly three-quarters of our planet.

And of all the world's secrets, none have tempted the curious more than the wrecks of ships and cargoes of treasure which lie fathoms beneath the sea. Skeletons of Viking long-ships, Venetian carracks, galleons of the Spanish Armada have tantalised archaeologists and historians with the possibility that one day the sea might give up its dead.

George Bass and his team of underwater archaeologists have at last realised that dream. His fascinating book, illustrated with over 360 photographs rewrites the history of seafaring through a series of breathtaking discoveries, including a Bronze Age merchantman found scuttled off the Turkish coast, remains of Phoenician, Greek and Roman galleys, the spectacular wrecks of the fabled Spanish treasure-fleets, and the last sailing ships to ply the Atlantic before the advent of steam.
