Bass and his team, who are recognized as the pioneers of marine archaeology.

Their most valuable excavations, in Turkey, are illustrated by breath-taking photos. ARCHAEOLOGY BENEATH THE SEA is a unique adventure not to be missed. GEORGE F.

He began diving in 1960.By 1967 his team was the first to locate an ancient wreck with side-scan sonar, a 280-foot-deep site inspected from their submersible Asherah. Between 1977 and 1979 he excavated at Serçe Limanı, Turkey, an 11th-century A.D. ship with three tons of broken glass; mended from a million shards over 20 years, it is the largest collection of medieval Islamic glass in existence.
