Book: Dragon Sea - Vietnamese Hoi An Hoard - Hard Back 1st Edition

Published price £18.99. Our price £5.99.

This book, "Dragon Sea", by Frank Pope is essentially the story of a 15th century shipwreck that came to be known as the "Hoi An Hoard". Frank Pope was the archaeological manager of the salvage operation. 

This book is NOT an illustrated catalogue of the Hoi An wreck, but is a very good read, not only revealing what really goes on in the world of underwater archaeology, but also reading as an exciting adventure story, all the more interesting because it is all true! Also touched on in this book are the Gerdermalsen, Diana, Tek Sing, Vung Tau and Belitung wrecks, as well as others.

Highly recommended reading for anyone interested in shipwreck archaeology (or anyone who simply enjoys a good rivetting read !).

This book is the first edition hardback with paper jacket published in 2007 by Penguin. 374 pages. 24cm x 16.5cm.

These books are new, not used or second-hand.
