Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A compilation of technical reports on an exciting project in experimental archaeology: the building and testing of a full- sized model of a hypothetical Athenian trireme of about 450 B.C. The three level of oars and square sails, often used together, are thought to have developed as a weapon against the endemic piracy that plagued the maritime trading nation. Rigging, voyage and speed trials, rowing, rowing astern, steering to ram, and hauling her up on the beach are among the actions reported. Many of the papers were presented to a September 1991 conference in Oxford, England. Distributed in the US by David Brown Book Co. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
