The Sea and Civilization: A Maritime History of the World
Speaker: Lincoln Paine
Portland resident Lincoln Paine takes us on a monumental tour of human history through the lens of the sea in his brand new book. The book reveals in depth how people first came into contact with one another by ocean and river, and how goods, languages, religions, and entire cultures spread across and along the world’s waterways. A book sale and signing will follow the talk – a great holiday gift for that maritime enthusiast on your list!
Lincoln Paine is the author of four books and more than fifty articles, reviews, and lectures on various aspects of maritime history.
