This is the first book to deal comprehensively with the archaeology of rafts, boats, and ships from the Stone Age to Medieval times. All the regions of the world are covered, from Atlantic Europe and the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean, the China Sea, and the Pacific."This is a remarkable tour de force on watercraft through history. ... Every maritime historian must have a copy of the book for both immediate reference and research. This text can serve as the ideal baseline for maritime history and ship construction courses. Given the illustrations and depth of coverage, this book would be cheap at twice the price."--ChoiceProduct DetailsSean McGrail was in the Royal Navy from 1946 to 1968 and is a Master Mariner.
