Research into the anthropogenic and taphonomic processes that affect the formation of maritime archaeological resources has grown significantly over the last decade in both theory and the analysis of specific sites and associated material culture. The addition of interdisciplinary inquiry, investigative techniques, and analytical modeling, from fields such as engineering, oceanography, and marine biology have increased our ability to trace the unique pathways through which archaeological sites progress from initial deposition to the present, yet can also link individual sites into an integrated socio-environmental maritime landscape. This edited volume presents a global perspective of current research in maritime archaeological landscape formation processes. In addition to “classically” considered submerged material culture and geography, or those that can be accessed by traditional underwater methodology, case studies include less-often considered sites and landscapes. These landscapes, for example, require archaeologists to use geophysical marine survey equipment to characterize extensive areas of the seafloor or go above the surface to access maritime archaeological resources that have received less scholarly attention.
During the year 1866, ships of several nations spot a mysterious sea monster, which some suggest to be a giant narwhal. The United States government assembles an expedition in New York City to find and destroy the monster. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist and narrator of the story, who happens to be in New York at the time, receives a last-minute invitation to join the expedition which he accepts. The ship finds the monster after a long search and then attacks the beast, which damages the ship's rudder. The three protagonists are then hurled into the water and grasp hold of the "hide" of the creature, which they find, to their surprise, to be a submarine very far ahead of its era. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo. L'apparition d'une bête monstrueuse en 1866 dans plusieurs mers du globe défraie la chronique. L'animal, rapide, fusiforme et phosphorescent, est responsable de plusieurs naufrages, brisant le bois des navires avec une force colossale. De retour d'une expédition dans le Nebraska, Pierre Aronnax, professeur suppléant au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, émet l'hypothèse d'un narval géant. Les compagnies d'assurances maritimes menacent d'augmenter leurs prix et demandent que le monstre soit éliminé. Une grande chasse est alors organisée à bord de l’Abraham Lincoln, fleuron de la marine américaine, mené par le commandant Farragut. Aronnax reçoit une lettre du secrétaire de la Marine lui demandant de rejoindre l’expédition pour représenter la France. Le scientifique embarque avec son fidèle domestique flamand, Conseil. Après des mois de navigation, la confrontation avec le monstre a enfin lieu, et l'Abraham Lincoln est endommagé. Un choc entre le monstre et la frégate projette Aronnax, Conseil et Ned par-dessus bord. Ils échouent finalement sur le dos du monstre, qui n'est autre qu'un sous-marin en tôle armée. Les naufragés sont faits prisonniers et se retrouvent à bord du mystérieux appareil. Ils font alors connaissance du capitaine Nemo, qui refuse de leur rendre la liberté.

The Meditations is divided into 12 books that chronicle different periods of Marcus' life. Each book is not in chronological order and it was written for no one but himself. The style of writing that permeates the text is one that is simplified, straightforward, and perhaps reflecting Marcus' Stoic perspective on the text. Depending on the English translation, Marcus' style is not viewed as anything regal or belonging to royalty, but rather a man among other men, which allows the reader to relate to his wisdom. Rédigées dans un style simple et froid, les Pensées sont une suite d'épigrammes et de courtes réflexions portant sur le devoir, la mort et la conduite du sage face aux erreurs et à la méchanceté des Hommes. Marc Aurèle, lui-même philosophe stoïcien développe la tradition d'Épictète selon laquelle tout Homme a le profond devoir de ne pas s'inquiéter de ce qui ne dépend pas de lui, c'est-à-dire les biens matériels, les honneurs, l'opinion des gens, mais doit en contrepartie se rendre parfaitement maître de ses émotions, avis, opinions et jugements, la seule chose dont il possède une parfaite maîtrise.
Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation...Darwin a vu de son vivant la théorie de l'évolution acceptée par la communauté scientifique et le grand public, alors que sa théorie sur la sélection naturelle a dû attendre les années 1930 pour être généralement considérée comme l'explication essentielle du processus d'évolution. Au XXIe siècle, elle constitue en effet la base de la théorie moderne de l'évolution. Sous une forme modifiée, la découverte scientifique de Darwin reste le fondement de la biologie, car elle explique de façon logique et unifiée la diversité de la vie.
This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (French: "Vingt mille lieues sous les mers") is a classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870. It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus, as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax after he, his servant Conseil, and Canadian harpoonist Ned Land wash up on their ship. On the Nautilus, the three embark on a journey which has them going all around the world. The original edition had no illustrations; the first illustrated edition was published by Hetzel with illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Édouard Riou. The book was highly acclaimed when released and still is now; it is regarded as one of the premiere adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with "Around the World in Eighty Days" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth". The description of Nemo's ship, the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines, which at the time were very primitive vessels. Thus, the book has been able to age well because of its scientific theories, unlike some other of Verne's works, like "Journey to the Center of the Earth", which are not scientifically accurate and serve more simply as adventure novels. "Vingt mille lieues sous les mers" est un roman d'aventures de Jules Verne, paru en 1869-1870. Cette œuvre a fait l'objet de nombreuses adaptations au cinéma, à la télévision ainsi qu'en bande dessinée.
The central character and narrator is 17-year-old David Balfour. His parents have recently died, and he is out to make his way in the world. He is given a letter by the minister of Essendean, Mr. Campbell, to be delivered to the House of Shaws in Cramond, where David's uncle, Ebenezer Balfour, lives. His uncle is also miserly, living on "parritch" and small ale, and the House of Shaws itself is partially unfinished and somewhat ruinous.Ebenezer asks David to get a chest from the top of a tower in the house but refuses to provide a lamp or candle. David is forced to scale the stairs in the dark and realises that not only is the tower unfinished in some places, but the steps simply end abruptly and fall into an abyss. David concludes that his uncle intended for him to have an "accident" so as not to have to give over his nephew's inheritance. En juin 1751 en Écosse, le jeune David Balfour suit les dernières volontés de son défunt père et prend la route du château de Shaws où demeure son dernier parent vivant, son oncle Ebenezer. David se rend bien vite compte que ce dernier tente de le spolier de son héritage, n'hésitant pas pour cela à attenter à sa vie. Mais avant d'avoir pu faire quoi que ce soit, David est enlevé et embarqué de force à bord du Covenant, un brick en partance pour Les Carolines. Voué à être vendu comme esclave dans une plantation, les jours s'écoulent à bord du navire et tout espoir semble perdu pour David. Le destin place alors sur sa route un allié providentiel en la personne d'Alan Breck Stewart, un fier Highlander jacobite, naufragé que le Covenant recueille à son bord.
This is an Egyptian edition of one of the most internationally celebrated works of fiction, Hemingway’s The old Man and the Sea. A Pulitzer-award and - Noble-prize winner, this work has cer- tainly become so extensively known all over the world, receiving a myriad of critical studies and translations. Hemingway himself could have never imagined such a sweeping success for his novel- la, devised while temporarily staying (for a few weeks) at a fishing village in Cuba. It is not simply the story of a big fish catch, but it is the story of a touching human relationship between old age and younghood, not to mention its highly philosophical message that it carries. All this, apart from other equally significant factors, makes Hemingway’s work worth reading and contemplating.
