In a beautiful volume featuring more than 170 maps and photographs, Mystery of the Ancient Seafarers follows the latest pursuits of National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert D. Ballard as he searches for clues to the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean. An immediate tie-in with the 2004 PBS special, Ballard's excavation focuses primarily on the story of the Phoenicians—traders who ruled Mediterranean commerce for 1,000 years, then disappeared.

A showcase of National Geographic's greatest strengths—exploration, discovery, and intricate maps—Mystery of the Ancient Seafarers is a fascinating journey through the depths of the Mediterranean and centuries of time.
