From the Preface:
"The aim of this book is to lead the novice step by step; firstly by giving an outline of the historical aspect, and then by describing the necessary tools and equipment, together with hints upon the selection of materials and their uses.
From this point full instructions are given upon the construction of a small Roman galley; a simple yet pleasing model for the first attempt. This is followed by constructional details of a slightly more ambitious, yet simple model - a Ship of the Clique Ports - as used by the forces of King John in the Battle off Damme in 1213 A.D."
