AGE OF THE GALLEY Reviews


'The work that gave me most pleasure [last year] was undoubtedly the on-going Conway's History of the Ship... intoxicating' Jan Morris in The Independent

About


Professor John Morrison, a distinguished classical scholar and past President of Wolfson College, Cambridge, is probably the world's leading authority on ancient oared craft. He was a leading light in the Olympias trireme project, for which he provided the academic research, and is the co-author (with R T Williams) of Greek Oared Ships, and (with John Coates) of The Athenian Trireme and Greek and Roman Oared Ships.
