The Athenian trireme : the history and reconstruction of an ancient Greek warship by J. S Morrison( Book )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly before the successful launch of Olympias, the reconstructed Greek warship, the first edition of The Athenian Trireme was published, providing historical and technical background to the reconstruction of the ship in a Greek shipyard. 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 last fifteen years. For this second edition, the text has been recast and a number of substantive changes have been made in the light of the sea trials and new research. In addition, there is an entirely new chapter which describes the trials of Olympias in detail, reports the performance figures obtained, and outlines the changes which the authors would wish to incorporate into any second reconstruction. There are nineteen new illustrations, including eleven photographs of Olympias at sea demonstrating features of the design which could be represented only by drawings in the first edition."--Jacket

The age of the galley : Mediterranean oared vessels since pre-classical times( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Age of the Galley charts this development from the earliest paleolithic craft, some of which were paddled rather than rowed, to the classical trireme and its Roman and Byzantine successors. However, as a warship the galley survived the coming of the three-masted sailing ship and even adapted itself to gunpowder artillery, so later chapters are devoted to the medieval and Renaissance fleets that served the later maritime powers of the Mediterranean. The principal historical chapters are backed by more general sections on the design and oar systems of galleys, on the organisation and infrastructure of galley fleets, and on non-military applications of the galley."--Jacket
