Richard Woodman's highly successful "The History of the Ship" is re-worked and updated. Man has used the boat and ship in his struggle to dominate the world around him, accomplishing spectacular feats of courage and exploration, exploitation, trade, communication and destruction. In his highly readable style, the author presents a comprehensive examination of the technical and cultural development of the ship, from the earliest dugout canoe to the nuclear submarine. The author's many years of sea-going experience and numerous writings on maritime topics help underpin the broad sweep of the narrative. Intertwined with the history of ships and the men who sailed them is the story of the technological, political, and ecopnomic developments that have shaped the evolution of nautical vessels, which Woodman succinctly places within their proper contexts, creating one of the most fascinating histories of man as inventor, trader and warrior ever written. The informative text is complemented with a plate section of black-and-white images ranging from ship plans, engravings and diagrams to marine paintings and photographs.

Maritime archaeology deals with shipwrecks and is carried out by divers rather than diggers. It embraces maritime history and analyses changes in shipbuilding, navigation and seamanship and offers fresh perspectives on the cultures and societies that produced the ships and sailors. Drawing on detailed past and recent case studies, Richard A. Gould provides an up-to-date review of the field that includes dramatic new findings arising from improved undersea technologies. This second edition of Archaeology and the Social History of Ships has been updated throughout to reflect new findings and new interpretations of old sites. The new edition explores advances in undersea technology in archaeology, especially remotely operated vehicles. The book reviews many of the major recent shipwreck findings, including the Vasa in Stockholm, the Viking wrecks at Roskilde Fjord and the Titanic.
