Apollonia On My Mind
Nic Flemming’s memoir recounts the life of a pioneer in ocean science. Each chapter describes a thread that structured his work: underwater cities, submerged Ice Age caverns dripping with stalactites, the limits to ocean exploitation, ocean climate change, prehistoric settlements on the continental shelf, ocean law, and safe scientific diving. This book is available for pre-order on the Sidestone press website.
Under the Mediterranean – 1963
Honor Frost published her book Under the Mediterranean in 1963, in the book she describes her first experience of diving in a well in Wimbledon to her first explorations in the Mediterranean. An excellent writer, Honor provides a fantastic insight in to what it is like to dive, it is in this book she states that ‘time spent on the surface was time wasted’. Much has changed since this was written almost 60 years ago, but Honor’s emphasis on the need for a rigorous scientific approach to underwater archaeology is clearly evident in the chapters of this book.
