Description: Stories of shipwrecks, tragedy, treasure, and daring rescues have fascinated readers for centuries. Wherever in the world you may be, there are famous wrecks to discover and multitudes of valuable artifacts trapped within these undersea hulks. The History of Shipwrecks explores the exciting world in the depths and takes readers on a journey of underwater adventure. It traces the history of man and the sea, diving, treasure hunting, and archaeology; and it invites the reader to visit sunken Roman warships and Spanish galleons, colonial vessels, and twentieth-century luxury liners - all captured here in glorious full-color photography.
With sections on famous divers and their discoveries, as well as illuminating timelines and maps, this fascinating, authoritative book will stir the imagination of all armchair deep-sea adventurers.
