Expeditions

Tim Severin is a prize-winning explorer, author, film-maker and lecturer. In these astonishing true stories of his expeditions, Tim tells of how he recreated famous historical and legendary voyages and adventures, including sailing across the Atlantic in an accurately reconstructed sixth-century leather boat, and journeying on horseback from Belgium to Jerusalem retracing the route of 11th century crusaders. He sailed the seven voyages of Sindbad on a boat made from Malabar planks sewn together with coconut cord, plastered with mutton fat and lime powder; followed the routes that Ulysses took to return home in Homer’s Odyssey; and navigated the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts. Tim’s accounts of his travels are both eloquent travelogues and wonderful journeys into myth, legend and times long past.
