Over the past generation, the building of accurate replicas of ships from the distant past has radically changed perceptions of our ancestors' sailing and voyaging. In this beautifully illustrated book, some of the world's leading authorities look at individual replicas and discuss what they have taught us. This fascinating work offers the most accessible view yet as to how the ships of our seafaring forbears affected the manner in which they traded, fought, and explored.
