The sea has always held a fascination for man, but until recently underwater exploration was hampered by poor technology. Now new diving methods have allowed divers to attain much greater depths. These advances have enabled archaeologists to locate and excavate a series of astonishing sites and have lead to underwater archaeology being recognised as a scientific discipline in its own right.
The unique sites which have been discovered- from shipwrecks and their sunken cargoes to cities once believed to have been lost forever beneath the waves- have many tales to tell. Their discoveries have enriched our historical knowledge of history and breathed life into the new discipline.
This book presents the history behind underwater archaeology, and explains the methods and techniques of diving, and underwater exploration, from the ancient diving bell described by Aristotle, through the Scuba apparatus devised by Émile Gagnan and Jacques-Yves Cousteau in the twentieth century, to modern unmanned and sonar exploration.
