Exploratio : military and political intelligence in the Roman world from the second Punic War to the Battle of Adrianople by N. J. E Austin( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploratio investigates how intelligence was gathered and handled in the Roman Empire, in the long term to help formulate strategy and in the short term for tactical reasons. Austin and Rankov discuss who gathered it and for whom, and how it grew in sophistication and accuracy over the six centuries from the outbreak of the Second Punic War in 218 BC to the Battle of Adrianople in AD 378. The authors show how proper archives and communications contributed towards improving readiness against threats to the Empire's external security, and lessening the serious effects that mistakes and shortcomings could have on battles and campaigns. The book also demonstrates how information was collected and processed by various bodies in the military and administrative spheres, and how it made a considerable impact on policy formation at all levels - from the purely local to the global
The Athenian trireme : the history and reconstruction of an ancient Greek warship by J. S Morrison( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 396 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

Trireme Olympias : the Final Report by N. B Rankov( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents the final publication of the Olympias project, which saw the building of a full-scale reconstruction of a 170-oared Athenian trireme of the 4th century BC and its operation in five series of sea-trials in the Aegean Sea. The first three sea-trials in 1987, 1988 and 1990 have already been published in separate volumes (the last two by Oxbow) and this completes the series with reports of the 1992 and 1994 trials. The 1992 report by Paul Lipke of Trireme Trust USA, which collaborated with the Trireme Trust in the operation of the ship, offers an alternative view of the proj
Shipsheds of the ancient Mediterranean by D. J Blackman( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first detailed and comprehensive study of the shipshed complexes which housed the great navies of the Greco-Roman world, including Athens and Carthage. These complexes represented some of the largest and most expensive building projects of antiquity, and the volume provides a comprehensive survey of the archaeological and literary evidence for them. It explains how the buildings were carefully designed to keep warships dry and out of reach of shipworm, whilst enabling them to be launched quickly, easily and safely when required. It also serves as a handbook for archaeologists who may excavate such buildings, which are often difficult to interpret. The analytical chapters are complemented by a full and detailed catalogue of known sheds, with plans for all the major sites specially drawn for easy comparison. The book thus provides an indispensable guide for all those interested in these buildings and in the maritime infrastructure of the ancient world"
