From the Bronze Age mariners of the Mediterranean to contemporary sailors using satellite-based technologies, the history of navigation at sea, the art of finding a position and setting a course, is fascinating. In this Very Short Introduction Jim Bennett looks at the history of navigation, examining the societal, the technical, and the human need to explore, and the vital role of navigation in shaping the modern world.
