Book Description

This book focuses on sponge diving in the island of Calymnos during the 19th and 20th century and explores the relation between this significant economic and professional activity and the social reality of the island. The book examines the use of mechanical diving equipment (the “skafandron”, which proved crucial to sponge diving from its appearance in 1866 until 1975), as a case study of the consequences of technological shifts at the economic level that also influence social structures and everyday life. The author also deals with cultural aspects of sponge diving and utilizes rich archival sources, as well as oral testimonies and publications in the Press
