Since the Stone Age, seas, lakes and rivers have been the prime means by which humans have travelled, both for exploration and to make trading connections. Written by a former Royal Navy officer and maritime archaeologist, this survey of important excavations shows how scholars have interpreted different types of evidence to understand not only the techniques of ancient European ship-building but also the uses to which vessels were put from the earliest times to the 15th century.
