    This proves, in my opinion, that the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece was a story based on fact.

    I appear to be going through a Tim Severin stage as it is the third book of his I have read in recent months and enjoyed them all. This one is no exception as it brings together a well known myth, good initial research, followed by a good well written factual account of the adventure as the myth is re-enacted. It is a very entertaining formula and I will continue to read subsequent adventures.

    Tim Severin is the man every man would love to meet. Affable in writing, detailed in observation and description, and a consumate sailor. Severin weaves a spectacular tale of adventure and exploration. Recounting the historic voyage of Jason and the Argonauts, Severin gives interesting insights into the construction of a bronze age vessel and sailing characteristics. Severin gives insights into the probable origin of some of the associated mythology, and the resurrection of almost lost naval construction skills. Reading this book one can only marvel at the early intrepid voyagers venturing into the unknown with only muscle and courage to aid them; truly this was the age of heroes. History is brought alive and vivid in Severin's book. I have read his other travelogues and he is doubtless among the best I have ever read. Regardless of whether you are an afficionado of sailing adventure or not, you'll love this. Buy it. Keep it. Revisit it often.

    Avoid the kindle e-book-version!Auch in Tim Severins drittem Buch ist mir das Thema historische Schiffe nicht langweilig geworden. Dieses Mal wird mit der "Argo" eine Galeere aus der Bronzezeit nachgebaut, um auf der Reise damit die Legende vom goldenen Vlies nachzuerleben. Die Sahnehaube der Geschichte ist die Begegnung zwischen dem Teamarbeiter Severin und einem divenhaften Bootsbauer von der griechischen Insel Spetsai, der grundsätzlich nicht nach Konstruktions-Zeichnungen arbeitet und keine Anweisungen von Auftraggebern entgegennimmt. Dagegen hat dieser empfindliche Bootsbauer-Star lebenslange Erfahrung, frisches Holz zu verbauen und ein unglaubliches Gespür, wie sich seine Konstruktion später beim Trocknen verhalten wird. Severin zeigt wie gewohnt sein geschicktes Händchen, rein zufällig Freiwillige mit unentbehrlichen Zusatzqualifikationen für das Projekt zu begeistern. Vom Tankerkapitän bis zum Spezialisten für Altgriechisch ist im Team für alles gesorgt. Die Galeerenmannschaft muss erfahren, wie seekrank man an Bord eines 20-Mann-Ruderbootes werden kann, wie rührend türkische Helfer sich um das Wohl des Teams kümmern (ich sage nur Hamam!) und wie schließlich georgische Gastfreundschaft organisiert wird.Vom e-book-Kauf rate ich entschieden ab, die Datei ist ein mühselig zu lesendes Chaos aus falsch gesetzten Leerzeichen, die Wörter mittendrin zerhacken und einzelne Buchstaben abtrennen.

    I have spent a long time reading this book, and rereading certain parts, as the technical details were important to me in my own writing about Neolithic travel. Although this journey is supposed to have occurred later than the time-frame I am writing about, much about the construction methods, the problems with steering and design, are relevant to the chalcolithic age too. What an adventure! I am very envious of those who had the opportunity to participate in such an experimental reconstruction of an ancient voyage. The writing is good, and there is real tension in Tim Severin's telling of the events of the voyage. Excerpts from a good translation of the text of Apollonius Rhodius are inserted in the tale, and a summary of it makes up a second appendix. The first contains references to the ancestry of the legend in its various guises, and the uses of and references made to it by different scholars. There are two pages of detailed plans of the ship's design and a lot of description of its original construction on Spetses. He did enough research into places mentioned in the text and trying to identify important sites along the way to interest the classical scholar too.An exciting read on many levels. On to his reconstruction of the voyages of Brendan next!

    To recreate the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts and determine if the myth had any basis in fact, Tim Severin and his team plan the construction of a 20-oared Greek galley and undertake a 1,500 mile journey from Greece to Colchis in Soviet Georgia. The narrative highlights current archeological findings and landmarks associated with the original story some 22 centuries later, most strikingly a cave considered to be the mouth of Hell. The Kindle version includes a photo section and a translation of Apollonius’ version of the story which the trip was based on, but there was NO map, a serious lack for a reader trying to follow along on the journey.

    I'd give this five stars if my copy didn't have so many strange printing errors. I don't mean typos. The last sentence on page 31 runs over on to page 32 but makes no sense whatsoever and the launch of the Argo, on page 55 is so scrambled the last line of the page not only runs over to the next, again making no sense, but actually seems to belong to half a paragraph half way down page 55. Other than that, it's a fine story.

    A book I wished I'd tackled sooner ! Extensively researched and with history and mythology well woven in to the saga of their efforts to copy the voyage of Jason to find the golden fleece - many doubters were proved wrong. This visits a part of the world I know little about and the technical data is well explained and the theme eclipses your imagination very early on. Nail biting at times ! I'm so glad I picked this book up !

    Severin is the heir apparent to the Thor Heyerdahl throne. This time, he recreated Argo and reenacts Jason's voyage from the Aegean through the Hellespont and along the southern Black Sea coast. If you like this kind of adventure tale (and I do) all of Severin's "Voyage" works are spellbinding.

    Like Thor Heyerdahl with Kon Tiki, Tim Severin reconstructed an ancient craft, the Argos, recruited a crew, and set out to recreate Jason's voyage seeking the Golden Fleece. I enjoyed this account of his adventures, but was not knowledgeable enough about the Jason story to judge how faithfully he duplicated their trip.

    Another book that I suddenly remembered I had read years ago. Read this one in Hokkaido and think I bought it second hand in NZ. Remember it as an interesting and impressive read. Tim Severin really made sure his Jason Voyage was authentically re-enacted and conquered. Wouldn't mind reading some of his other voyages, he seems to have written a lot!

    Severins third historic sea voyage, and equally as readable and interesting as his others.An appreciable mix of the folk tale of Jason and the Argonauts, the research and construction of the new Argo (the 20 oar galley), the voyage, the archaeology and the history.

    It was very difficult to row ancient boats. It is difficult to raise a crew for such a boat, and the logistics are demanding. Foreign nations around the Black Sea create complications. Tim Severin made a very goos case for his route being the basis for Jason and the Argonauts.

    I think I possibly would have appreciated this more if I had more of an understanding of sailing/rowing terminology, and unfortunately this kindle edition was plagued with proofing errors. But overall, an enjoyable read combining modern seafaring and ancient history.

    Interesting. Did not know up to now that someone in modern times made the same voyage as the Argonauts...I may read some of his other books on similar adventures.

    Wonderfully done... quite a gripping account of retracing another legendary voyage...
