George Fletcher Bass (/bæs/; born December 9, 1932) is recognized as one of the early practitioners of underwater archaeology, along with Peter Throckmorton, Honor Frost, and others. Since directing his first excavation, he has excavated shipwrecks of the Bronze Age, Classical Age, and the Byzantine.
The book brings together the work of leading nautical archaeologists. Purchased this book for my grandchildren. George F. Bass is their grandfather's brother. They now have a piece of their heritage.

Underwater archaeology has a double advantage. First, water tends to act as something of a preservative, protecting wood and other perishable items. Second, the sites – namely, the sunken ships or boats – can be difficult to reach by all but experienced divers, thus protecting them from random digging. Despite this double advantage, nautical archaeology was a neglected sphere of archaeology.
