About the Author

Robert F. Marx has explored over 3,000 shipwrecks and dozens of sunken cities in 62 countries over the past 50 years. His most recent discovery was an eighth century BC Phoenican shipwrecks of Rhodes, Greece. He has written 56 books on maritime history, underwater archaeology and shipwrecks, as well as over 800 popular articles and archaeological reports. In 1962 he organized and served as the navigator on NINA II, authentically duplicating Columbus' first voyage across the Atlantic - for which he was knighted by the Spanish Government. In 1962 and 1964 he captained two authentically built 10th century Viking ships for two other voyages in European waters. He and his wife live in Indialantic, Florida near Cape Canaveral.

Reviews

In a month of high quality publications, this engrossing book stands out as something very special indeed. This is one of the most compelling accounts of an archaeological expedition I have ever read. Marx's ability to bring history to life is extraordinary and his account of the dangerous excavations was pure Indiana Jones stuff. DIVE Magazine The author, Robert Marx, is a colourful and controversial character in the archaeological business and not without his critics. He is well known for his treasure-hunting expeditions around the world. Some say he sails close to the wind in his navigation between archaeology and outright treasure hunting. Such a controversial approach inevitably involves dramatic 'adventures' which, while not necessarily gaining universal approval, assure the reader of a fascinating and exciting ride.
