 DESCRIPTION
spacer
In recent years more people and institutes have realised the importance of our maritime past and the need to save the remains from the ravages of time and illegal activities through recently developed tools and scientific methods of maritime archaeology. The developed scientific techniques have helped to make maritime archaeological studies more systematic. And now it is possible for archaeologists to reconstruct in detail the daily lives onboard, commerce and technology from findings such as cargoes, personal belongings and ship remains. 'Shipwrecks around the World: Revelations of the past', covers the story of many shipwrecks from the 15th century onwards, from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, from the north Atlantic to south Atlantic, from Europe to Australia, each shipwreck encapsulating a moment in time and thus illuminating an entire era. The book contains 35 significant and scholarly articles written by specialists involved in the scientific survey of shipwrecks. In addition to papers on shipwrecks, there are papers on conservation of shipwreck finds, and UNESCO Field School on Underwater Cultural Heritage 2009-2011, Thailand, capacity building in the Asian and Pacific Region, and the 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. The book contains illustrations of lost ships, drawings supported by original maps and a good number of both inland and underwater photographs of artefacts and antiquities that were recovered and documented in the course of exploration and excavation. Undoubtedly this book will fascinate, enhance the knowledge of researchers and scholars and provide them with an insight into shipwrecks. Shipwrecks around the World also provides one with a positive look at future sites and an exciting glimpse into deepwater shipwreck findings.
