The edited volume Fishing in the Greek seas. From the testimonies of the past to contemporary reality, contains eleven studies concerning fishing activity in the Aegean and Ionian Seas. These cover a long period, from prehistory until modern times, and employ a wide range of scientific approaches when dealing with the past: archaeology, history, ethnology and anthropology. They highlight, by means of case-studies, diverse aspects of fishing, such as fishing activity in antiquity; tools and methods, recent fishing techniques and their circumstances in the Aegean and Ionian seas; representations in ancient painting; and the close association with the world of labour in modern times. Edited by Dimitris Dimitropoulos and Evdokia Olympitou, the book contains texts by: Nikos Alevyzakis, El. P. Alexakis, Konstantina Bada, Athina Chatzidimitriou, Katia Fragoudi, Helen Gerontakou, Maria Kamonachou, Paschalis M. Kitromilides, George Koutsouflakis, Panayiotis Michailaris and the editors.
