Originally published in 1894, this book presents a detailed study of ships from the Mediterranean area during the period 1000 BC to 1000 AD. Evidence is drawn from written sources, including inscriptions and literature, and material sources, such as the ruins of the docks at Athens and small surviving pieces of the ships themselves. The text provides detailed information on the structural elements of ships and includes an appendix section on different types of ship. Illustrative figures are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the ancient world and shipping.
