Le navi antiche di Pisa: Ad un anno dallinizio delle ricerche (English and Italian Edition)

This book is published as a museum is about to open in the Medici Dockyards of Pisa to house the finds from recent excavations of part of the ancient Roman port of Pisa. This on-going project has recovered a wide range of objects and materials which were displayed at an exhibition in 1999 and are presented here through a series of thematic essays. Each of the authors presents a discussion of different aspects of the finds and/or the project: gold fibulae; glass items, pottery; oil lamps; human and animal bones; anchors, tackle and wood; restoration, conservation and the creation of the new museum.
