About the book
The fishing technology of the Classical world has so far received little systematic attention, neither from historians nor from archaeologists. In this volume, the reader will find a series of studies offering a wide range of approaches to the topic of ancient fishing technology, based on detailed studies of the available literary, archaeological, pictorial and icthyological evidence as well as on diachronic comparisons with fishing techniques of the Early Medieval and Modern periods. The articles included in the present volume are based on the authors' presentations at an international, interdisciplinary workshop in Cádiz, covering the history of fishing from Pre-history to the present day, with a special emphasis on the Roman period.

"...the high standard of authorship and the diversity of information ensure that this is a worthy contribution to the study of what has been a relatively unexplored topic."
