Title Review

Over the ages, countless ships have met with disaster. And with every such mishap has vanished it story as well. Shipwreck studies, now a key area of the maritime archaeological research, is trying to unravel the past from such mishaps, Carrying 35 well-researched papers, this volume covers almost all significant aspects of shipwrecks explored from the Baltic Sea to North Atlantic Ocean, from the Mediterranean Sea to Indian Ocean, from Egypt to South Africa, and elsewhere. Written by scholars specializing in shipwreck archaeology, underwater archaeology, and marine history, the papers also consider the 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage; besides several related themes, including conservation of shipwreck finds, studies on shipwreck timber, and Riverine.

Sila Tripati is a Marine Archaeologist with the CSIR National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India.
