Close Encounters: Sea- and Riverborne Trade, Ports and Hinterlands, Ship Construction and Navigation in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and in Modern Time

Marinella Pasquinucci and Timm Weski


The 18 papers in this volume are derived from papers presented at the Lisbon EAA conference in 2000. The work studies the links between trade and local production and between sea routes, shipbuilding and navigation techniques in a diachronic perspective from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and Modern times, in areas of the Ancient and of the New World, through historical sources including urban and settlement archaeology, landscape and underwater archaeology.
