Sea Remembers

Overview

Although the ocean bottom may still hold untold fortunes in silver and gold, the past itself is the sea's real treasure. Maritime archaeology, like its landlocked cousin, reconstructs the everyday lives of real people from the wreckage of the past. Salvaged from the ravages of time and human destruction and miraculously resurrected by scientific techniques, cargoes, personal belongings, and the very timbers of the ships themselves reveal astonishing details about our ancestors and their lives.

Overview

Although the ocean bottom may still hold untold fortunes in silver and gold, the past itself is the sea's real treasure. Maritime archaeology, like its landlocked cousin, reconstructs the everyday lives of real people from the wreckage of the past. Salvaged from the ravages of time and human destruction and miraculously resurrected by scientific techniques, cargoes, personal belongings, and the very timbers of the ships themselves reveal astonishing details about our ancestors and their lives. As scholar-diver Peter Throckmorton puts it, "It has become the destiny of ships that did not arrive to tell the story of those that did."

An international team of experts recounts the stories of thrilling discoveries at key wreck sites from the Bronze Age to the 20th century. Reconstructions of lost ships and photographs of fascinating relics, from Homer's Greece to the Titanic, relate the stories of the ships, as well as their impact on trade, exploration, warfare, and an increasingly shrinking world. A final chapter examines how sophisticated underwater probes and salvage techniques will allow divers to locate future wrecks, examine them in detail, and raise them or the artifacts they carried, shedding light on long-forgotten voyages. 9 1/4" x 11 1/2". Photos, maps, and reconstructions in color & b&w. 240pp.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book celebrates the great accomplishments of the young science of maritime archaeology, surveying major excavations and key issues. Its contributors include the field's best and brightest. Its short essays are easy to read and comprehensive. Its layout, editing, and graphics make it as beautiful as it is informative. And there could be no more fitting editor. Throckmorton's ideas and energy helped launch the field, and his influence and encouragement have touched nearly every major practitioner and project. If you buy one book on maritime archaeology, let this be it. For most libraries. Jay R. Kaufman, Massachusetts Bay Marine Studies Consortium, Boston
