The author is a respected nautical archeologist who was part of the team that discovered and excavated the first ancient boat from the Sea of Galilee. In trying to identify the excavated vessel Wachsmann traces Jewish historical texts to discover the boat's historical past as part of one of the most tragic massacres of the Jews--the Battle of Migdal.. It was during this sea battle, Roman soldiers mercilessly slaughtered Jews as they attempted to escape in boats like the one Wachsmann helped excavate. Item #22668
