At last a paperback edition of this standard work on marine archaeology. Séan McGrail's study received exceptional critical acclaim when it was first published in hardback in 1987 and it is now revised and published in paperback for the first time. Professor McGrail provides an authoritative survey of water transport across Northern Europe from the Late Palaeolithic to the later Middle Ages, using evidence of excavations, but also documentary sources, iconographic and ethnographic evidence. In the process he answers such key questions as How were these boats built? What sort of environment were they used in? What speeds could they achieve? and how were they navigated?

Remains to be Seen is a fascinating series which looks at the past through the archaeological evidence that remains today. Ancient Egypt looks at who the Egyptians were, and their everyday life, what Gods and Goddesses they believed in, and their religion. Also discussed is the history of Egypt during the reigns of the two Pharaohs - Akhenaten and Tutankhamun, the history behind their writing and art (hieroglyphs, papyrus, painting and sculpture), and finally the history of Egypt under the Greeks and Romans, and how the past is discovered today. There are fact boxes which highlight key facts and the text is supported by a wonderful array of photographs and maps. Ancient Egypt also features a time-line, glossary and full index.
