EARLY SHIPS AND SEAFARING Water Transport Beyond Europe

£19.99 £5.99

In this volume Professor Sean McGrail introduces the reader to a relatively new branch of Archaeology – the study of water transport – how early rafts, boats and ships were built and used. Concepts, such as boat building traditions, ship stability and navigation without instruments, are first described. Archaeological research is then discussed, including sea levels in earlier times, how to distinguish the vestigial remains of a cargo vessel from those of a fighting craft; and the difference between a boat and a ship.
