Underwater Archaeology. Exploring the World Beneath the Sea.

Blot, J.

Paperback. 176 pp. Very richly illustrated. 17.60 x 12.40 cm. Thames and Hudson 1996.

For centuries divers have been raising treasures from the waters – ancient Greek statues, Viking ships, 18th-century trading vessels and even entire towns.

Since the invention of the aqualung in the 1940s, archaeologists have developed new techniques to excavate and preserve their finds, providing valuable information about our ancestors, their everyday life, trade and art. Today sophisticated equipment enables archaeological work to be carried out at previously unimaginable depths.

With stunning illustrations, Underwater Archaeology highlights not only the danger and excitement but also the painstaking research involved in exploring our unique underwater heritage.
