Shipwrecks And Ruins Around The World
Playing into our mysterious fascination for things that history has forgotten, this small volume presents a collection of wrecked vessels and structures of all types, found in a variety of locations around the world. Beginning with ships that have foundered in shallow coastal inlets or against rocky headlands, or were left high and dry as waters receded, it continues with inland ruins that range from decrepit castles and abandoned mansions, to mining complexes, ironworks, and ghost towns. The geographic location of each object is pinpointed on a map, and a year and name (if known) are also given. One of the book’s three sections is dedicated exclusively to ruins in Japan.
