Item description for Egypt's Sunken Treasures by Franck Goddio...

An updated and revised edition, this book features photographs and images from a landmark underwater excavation that changed the maps of history.
In the shallow waters of Aboukir Bay off the coast of Egypt, the ruins of three ancient cities Alexandria, Heraklion, and Canopus lie along with valuable clues to the way their citizens lived and worshipped. The French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio discovered these relics, which include statuary, jewelry, pediments, stone tablets, and fragments of buildings, all lost for nearly two thousand years. In addition to remarkable photographs of the excavation process, this illuminating volume connects the artifacts to the lives of Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, and Mark Anthony. It discusses the interactions among the three cities, between Egyptians and ancient Greeks, and the influences each civilization had on the other. An exciting volume for anyone interested in ancient history, this richly illustrated book is the most comprehensive examination to date on the excavation of the lost cities below Aboukir Bay.

Reviews - What do customers think about Egypt's Sunken Treasures?

Sternstunde  Jan 15, 2007
Eine Sternstunde der Unterewasserarchaeologie wird in Wort und Bild auf hoechstem Niveau spannend und auch unterhaltsam dokumentiert.
Extensive color photos and historical background is accessible to all  Oct 14, 2006
The price tag's a bargain for an oversized presentation of nearly five hundred pages perfect for both general interest public library holdings and those specializing in Egyptian history or archaeological discoveries. The ruins of not one but three ancient cities off the coast of Egypt have contributed important clues to the culture, life and sentiments of early Egyptian civilization, and author Franck Goddio as key discoverer of these relics is in a prime position to present images of the excavation process in EGYPT'S SUNKEN TREASURES. His survey not only documents the process of excavation and research, but Goddio's role as founder and president of the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology in Paris lends an authority and background to the discoveries which is unique and well detailed. One would think this would result in a survey too weighty for general audience interest, but the extensive color photos and historical background is accessible to all.
