Alexandria : The Sunken Cityby William La Riche, Stephane Compoint (Photographer)
The illustrated story of the underwater exploration of the Pharos site and harbour complex by Jean-Yves Empereur and his team in 1994/5. Revealing traces of the famous lighthouse (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), this exhilarating book recounts the campaigns that salvaged colossal broken statues, architectural blocks, and a dozen sphinx from the sea. An irresistible glimpse of the hellenistic city of the Ptolemies.
