Abstract : This photo book, like a logbook, traces the scientific adventure of the reconstruction and navigation, according to ancient techniques, of an archaic Greek ship replica dates from the sixth century BC., baptized Gyptis . Accompanied by a short and didactic text , it explains from the discovery of the wreck in Marseille in 1993 to first test at sea of its replica in 2013, how the descendants of the first settlers of Marseille, came from their distant Aegean to built this "stitched" boat fully assembled by ligatures, and sailed on the great coastal boat with a square sail. Photographers, Loïc Damelet, Christine and Philippe Durand Groscaux (†) Centre Camille Jullian, Mediterranean archeology laboratory of Aix-en-Provence (Aix-Marseille University, CNRS) at the origin of the project, seized day after day each step of this challenge to illustrate both the work of carpenters and archaeologists, such Patrice Pomey and Pierre Poveda, who reconstructed and sailed the Gyptis.
