Cover of: The lost wreck of the Isis | Robert D. Ballard

About the Book

From the front flap: The Lost Wreck of the Isis tells the gripping story of the JASON Project's exploration of the deepest ancient shipwreck ever found. It then flashes back in time to the fourth century A.D. where we find ourselves sailing from Rome to North Africa with Antonius, a young merchant's son. We experience the excitement of a sea voyage in ancient times and explore the colorful port city of Carthage - from its bustling market and lavish baths to the dramatic scene of gladiators battling in the arena.

On every page of this book, stunning photographs, accurate illustrations and fascinating diagrams bring history, archaeology and scientific exploration to life as part of a thrilling modern-day TIME QUEST adventure story.
