9780521564199: The Athenian Trireme: The History and Reconstruction of an Ancient Greek Warship

Shortly before the launch of the reconstructed Greek warship, Olympias, the first edition of The Athenian Trireme was published, providing historical and technical background to the reconstruction of the ship. Since then, five seasons of experimental trials have been conducted on the ship under oar and sail, and the lessons learned have been supplemented by new archaeological discoveries and by historical, scientific and physiological research over the past fifteen years. For this second edition, the text has been recast and a number of substantive changes have been made. In addition, there is an entirely new chapter that describes the trials of Olympias in detail, reports the performance figures, and outlines the changes desirable in any second reconstruction. There are nineteen new illustrations, including eleven photographs of Olympias at sea demonstrating features of the design that could be represented only by drawings in the first edition.

Book Description:

Since the appearance of the first edition of The Athenian Trireme in 1986, five seasons of experimental trials have been conducted in the reconstructed ship. There have been relevant new archaeological discoveries and much historical, scientific and physiological research. For this second edition, the text has been recast and a number of substantive changes have been made. In addition, there is an entirely new chapter which describes the trials in detail and proposes modifications to the ship's design. There are 19 new illustrations, including 11 photographs of Olympias at sea.

Review:

"Clearly written and well-organized...Generously illustrated with maps, drawings, and photographs...[it] will fascinate anyone interested in the sea and ships, ancient history, or classical archaelogy." Historian

"The new edition of The Athenian Trireme continues the success of the first...the new chapter and the up-dating of some of the material and the bibliography make the new volume a worthwhile effort." Phoenix
