Nautical archaeologists excavate three shipwrecks from the depths of the Eastern Mediterranean and show that these ancient ships are treasure troves of information, including the documentation of trade routes, products, and even social conditions. The three ships, dating from before 300 B.C. to 1025 A.D. tell the story of a significant change in the methods of ship construction--a change reflecting broader alterations in social, political, and economic conditions. Includes animated sequences and special sound effects, along with maps and photographs.
