  1. Sorry i cannot find anything, you could always try contacting the army or directly the 33 RIMA which currently does the job.
  2. I would recommend to drop an email to the website contact page to ask for more info, a source, and where that painting comes from. If it's in a museum ask the museum. Google reverse image search doesn't show anything.
  3. Yes, a classic indeed, even thought as far as civil war hexes go i prefer the hps titles.
  4. The second i put it down i ordered every single book he has ever written. Excellent content, excellent writing: excellent author.
  5. Thanks for the pics, it's been a while since i was there, and Congrats!
  6. I don't mind the price too much as i just set price alerts and can wait years till i get that book that costs hundreds for 3 pounds delivery included 😎 . That one seems to be a collection of essays which are always interesting, thanks. Can't go wrong with cambridge uni press, merci. 😋
  7. Thanks for taking the time to write your answer, is there a particular book you would recommend on the subject?
  8. True for most of the antiquity, slaves were used for let's say the "economical" matters not the military ones, in fact oarsman was considered a pretty good job in greece, but later on even the navy started using slaves ( venice, the barbary pirates, the french... ) True.
  9. Not really no, yes the oars were useful to find shelter in coves, but ships at the time very much sailed on the open sea, precisely using the oars if the winds were not favorable. You wouldn't sail from say lybia to greece by following the coast, and there were islands that both needed trade and offered shelter on the way. Sure a lot of the trade was following the coast but there was plenty of open sea trade.
  10. Oars were indeed used when there was lack of wind but mostly to go against the wind. The trade was mostly coastal and rivers were rarely used, more accurately the ships that used the rivers were not the same ones that would go at sea. And yes usually the rowing was done by slaves. This applies to most ships in the Mediterranean.
  11. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/oct/23/oldest-intact-shipwreck-thought-to-be-ancient-greek-discovered-at-bottom-of-black-sea Archaeologists have found what they believe to be the world’s oldest intact shipwreck at the bottom of the Black Sea where it appears to have lain undisturbed for more than 2,400 years. The 23-metre (75ft) vessel, thought to be ancient Greek, was discovered with its mast, rudders and rowing benches all present and correct just over a mile below the surface. A lack of oxygen at that depth preserved it, the researchers said. “A ship surviving intact from the classical world, lying in over 2km of water, is something I would never have believed possible,” said Professor Jon Adams, the principal investigator with the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (MAP), the team that made the find. “This will change our understanding of shipbuilding and seafaring in the ancient world.” The ship is believed to have been a trading vessel of a type that researchers say has only previously been seen “on the side of ancient Greek pottery such as the ‘Siren Vase’ in the British Museum”.
