With the help of maps, pictures, photographs and other illustrations, Neil Morris traces the history of ships from the early wooden ones constructed by the ancient Egyptians to merchant ships built by the far-sighted Romans, to the powerful longships of the Vikings and finally, the mighty twentieth century ocean liners. Also discussed in these pages are the better known merchant ships such as the Mayflower and Columbus's Santa Maria that helped open up the New World. A glossary at the end of the book explains unfamiliar and technical terms. Part of the series, Traveling Through Time, which explores the history of transportation.
