De re navali : Pérégrinations nautiques entre Méditerranée et océan Indien

Mélanges en l’honneur de Patrice Pomey
Edited by Giulia Boetto and Éric Rieth

This volume, written by fourteen friends, colleagues and former students, is dedicated to Patrice Pomey, nautical archaeologist and specialist in the ancient Mediterranean, emeritus director of research at the CNRS, and former director of the Direction des Recherches Archéologiques Sous-Marines (French Ministry of Culture) and of the Centre Camille Jullian (Aix Marseille University, CNRS). With a preface by André Tchernia and an introduction by the editors, Giulia Boetto and Éric Rieth, the work is composed of four sections that reflect the themes to which Patrice Pomey has devoted most of his career. Five articles bearing on the nautical archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean make up the first part, while the second features two contributions looking at nautical iconography.
The four studies of the third part recall Pomey’s interest in nautical ethnography as well as his work on the “sewn” boats of Kerala and the boats of Lake Borollos in Egypt. The fourth and final section is entitled “Varia” and contains three articles exploring other themes dear to Patrice Pomey: dendrochronology, the use of study models, and experimental archaeology.
