21. August 2012 Ed Rachal Foundation Nautical Archaeology
This book is a guide to the study of the most marvelous structures ever built by humankind-wooden ships and boats. It is intended for nautical archaeologists and for anyone charged with documenting and interpreting the remains of wrecked or abandoned vessels. It will also be of value to historians, authors, model builders, and others interested in the design and construction of wooden watercraft of the past. The text is divided into three parts. The first introduces the discipline and presents enough basic information to permit the untrained reader to understand the analysis of ship and boat construction that follows. Part II is broken into three chapters that investigate ancient, medieval, and post-medieval shipwrecks and supporting documentation. Not all of the world's ship and boat excavations can be included in this single volume; nautical archaeology has progressed too far for that. Instead, these three chapters have been assembled to represent a cross section of shipbuilding technology as seen through the interpretation of a select group of finds. Part III addresses the techniques of recording hull remains, assembling archival information, reconstructing vessels, and converting data into plans and publication. It is by no means a "how-to" section. Sites, logistics, and the wrecks themselves vary so much that, like wooden shipbuilding, this discipline can never become an exact science. Rather, the third part of the book discusses work done on previous projects and suggests additional methods that might prove helpful to readers in their own endeavors. The book contains an illustrated glossary, specifically designed for archaeological use. There is also a select bibliography, annotated where titles do not indicate content and arranged in historical groups to provide sources for most areas of research.

I like very much the way the general ideas are exposed, the only thing that does not fit so well is that this book should be divided in two books a little bit more complete. It is a very good book that helped me in my dig.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An essential text for anyone aspiring to enter the field of Nautical Archaeology. 28. Mai 2014
Von DriftingArchaeo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Steffy, one of the founding fathers of the discipline of Nautical Archaeology along with George Bass and arguably THE pioneer of ship preservation, has attempted to lay out much of his vast knowledge in this text, published in 1994. His incredible attention to detail is evident in all of the case studies that he has chosen for this book, and nothing - right down to the direction that the grain runs in a trennel - escapes his notice. His interpretations of his case studies may be exhaustive, but so is the glossary in the back of the book. If he uses a word that you don't know, just flip to the glossary and it is probably defined there, often along with a helpful sketch to really help you get the concept.

The sheer volume of information and depth of description does make the book a little dry to read, but it still isn't quite as dry as standard archaeological reports. While Bass has a more exciting writing style, no one can pack as much information into a page as Steffy can while keeping it fairly interesting. Steffy is, however, not a miracle worker, and you should pursue this book as more of a reference book than the kind of book that you read straight through.

This text is assigned for undergraduate and graduate level nautical archaeology classes in every university that offers them, and for good reason; it should be considered an essential work by anyone who is studying to enter the field.
