Description
When Oxford archeologist Mensun Bound--dubbed the "Indiana Jones of the Deep" by the Discovery Channel--teamed up with a financier to salvage a sunken trove of fifteenth-century porcelain, it seemed a dream enter­prise. The stakes were high: The Hoi An wreck lay hundreds of feet down in a typhoon-prone stretch of water off the coast of Vietnam known as the Dragon Sea. Raising its contents required saturation diving, a crew of 160, and a fleet of boats. The costs were unprecedented. But the potential rewards were equally high: Bound would revolutionize thinking about Vietnamese ceramics, and his partner would make a fortune auctioning off the pieces. Hired as the project's manager, Frank Pope watched the tumultuous drama of the Hoi An unfold. In Dragon Sea he delivers an engrossing tale of danger, adventure, and ambition--a fascinating object lesson in what happens when scholarship and money join forces to recover lost treasure.
