Maiden Voyage

Some 'Olympias Class' triremes take to sea. Nice to have the rowers but shame that they should be hidden behind screens for combat :(  Anyway, I know they are there ...

More Vids

 Episode of RAI programme 'Ulysses' archaeology etc. deals with Egadi battle and finds.

'Baal. Help us penetrate this weapon into the belly of the enemy ship.'

Great video summary of Egadi finds.
Remember to set subtext on if you are not good in Italian. More vids in YOUTUBE list. See 'I rostri di Levanzo e la Battaglia delle Egadi' especially - very atmospheric.
