The research carried out in the last few years in the Leverhulme-funded project
on Shipsheds in the Ancient Mediterranean directed by Blackman, Rankov and
Pakkanen will bring about a leap forward in the systemisation of knowledge in
this field. Paradoxically this new and better-organised information, especially
