About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Shipwrecks of Australia's West Coast

Publisher: Western Australian Museum

Publication Date: 2012

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Fine


300 pp., illustrations, maps, bibliography. Since 1622 British, Dutch, Portuguese, American and many other ships have run foul of the treacherous waters along Australia’s west coast. These shipwrecks include tales of murder and mutiny, gold and pieces of eight, heroic rescues and lonely strandings, wartime tragedy, and the earliest interactions between Aboriginal people and Europeans. Equally fascinating are the stories of search and discovery, piecing together clues to reveal the locations and identities of wrecks, and the meticulous processes of conserving wreck sites and artefacts — all important in the recovery of a major aspect of Australian history. Shipwrecks of Australia's West Coast is a beautifully full-colour illustrated, highly readable book, with detailed accounts of all of the major shipwrecks, along with detailed maps and background information on maritime and Australian history, and on the fascinating processes of discovery, archaelogical research and conservation of shipwrecks. 0.0.
