This proves, in my opinion, that the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece was a story based on fact.

Revives memories of childhood

I was intrigued by this book as I had grown up watching classic adventures on tv like Jason and the Argonauts and the Sinbad films. I really enjoyed reading about how much the author learned about the ways of ancient mariners whilst following the adventures of the original argonauts. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the obvious lack of any real proof reading on the text. Changing of people's names because of misspelling, multiple sentences ma

I appear to be going through a Tim Severin stage as it is the third book of his I have read in recent months and enjoyed them all. This one is no exception as it brings together a well known myth, good initial research, followed by a good well written factual account of the adventure as the myth is re-enacted. It is a very entertaining formula and I will continue to read subsequent adventures.

Inspired by, presumably, Thor Heyerdahl, Tim Severin spent much of the '70s and '80s and other people's money recreating some historic boat journeys; in this case, that of Jason and the Argonauts, from Iolcus (now Volos in Greece) to Colchis (now Georgia; in 1984 also Georgia, though Severin almost exclusively refers to it as Soviet Georgia).
The book covers everything from the construction of the replica Argo in Greece to their (view spoiler) arrival in Poti, (Soviet)

Gripping stuff, a great blend of legend and adventure. Severin and his many helpers did a monumental task. Two issues however. The scanning of the book into digital format has missed some glaring errors, and in one or two places the text just simply does not make sense. More annoying however is the lack maps - such a journey with so many legs and stop off points cries out for maps to allow the reader to trace the progress of the voyage.

Tim Severin is the man every man would love to meet. Affable in writing, detailed in observation and description, and a consumate sailor. Severin weaves a spectacular tale of adventure and exploration. Recounting the historic voyage of Jason and the Argonauts, Severin gives interesting insights into the construction of a bronze age vessel and sailing characteristics. Severin gives insights into the probable origin of some of the associated mythology, and the resurrection of almost lost naval con ...more

Avoid the kindle e-book-version!

Auch in Tim Severins drittem Buch ist mir das Thema historische Schiffe nicht langweilig geworden. Dieses Mal wird mit der "Argo" eine Galeere aus der Bronzezeit nachgebaut, um auf der Reise damit die Legende vom goldenen Vlies nachzuerleben. Die Sahnehaube der Geschichte ist die Begegnung zwischen dem Teamarbeiter Severin und einem divenhaften Bootsbauer von der griechischen Insel Spetsai, der grundsätzlich nicht nach Konstruktions-Zeichnungen arbeitet und keine

I have spent a long time reading this book, and rereading certain parts, as the technical details were important to me in my own writing about Neolithic travel. Although this journey is supposed to have occurred later than the time-frame I am writing about, much about the construction methods, the problems with steering and design, are relevant to the chalcolithic age too.
What an adventure! I am very envious of those who had the opportunity to participate in such an experimental reconstruction

To recreate the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts and determine if the myth had any basis in fact, Tim Severin and his team plan the construction of a 20-oared Greek galley and undertake a 1,500 mile journey from Greece to Colchis in Soviet Georgia. The narrative highlights current archeological findings and landmarks associated with the original story some 22 centuries later, most strikingly a cave considered to be the mouth of Hell. The Kindle version includes a photo section and a translation ...more

I'd give this five stars if my copy didn't have so many strange printing errors. I don't mean typos. The last sentence on page 31 runs over on to page 32 but makes no sense whatsoever and the launch of the Argo, on page 55 is so scrambled the last line of the page not only runs over to the next, again making no sense, but actually seems to belong to half a paragraph half way down page 55. Other than that, it's a fine story. ...more

A book I wished I'd tackled sooner ! Extensively researched and with history and mythology well woven in to the saga of their efforts to copy the voyage of Jason to find the golden fleece - many doubters were proved wrong. This visits a part of the world I know little about and the technical data is well explained and the theme eclipses your imagination very early on. Nail biting at times ! I'm so glad I picked this book up ! ...more

Severin is the heir apparent to the Thor Heyerdahl throne. This time, he recreated Argo and reenacts Jason's voyage from the Aegean through the Hellespont and along the southern Black Sea coast. If you like this kind of adventure tale (and I do) all of Severin's "Voyage" works are spellbinding. ...more

Like Thor Heyerdahl with Kon Tiki, Tim Severin reconstructed an ancient craft, the Argos, recruited a crew, and set out to recreate Jason's voyage seeking the Golden Fleece. I enjoyed this account of his adventures, but was not knowledgeable enough about the Jason story to judge how faithfully he duplicated their trip. ...more

Another book that I suddenly remembered I had read years ago. Read this one in Hokkaido and think I bought it second hand in NZ. Remember it as an interesting and impressive read. Tim Severin really made sure his Jason Voyage was authentically re-enacted and conquered. Wouldn't mind reading some of his other voyages, he seems to have written a lot! ...more

Severins third historic sea voyage, and equally as readable and interesting as his others.
An appreciable mix of the folk tale of Jason and the Argonauts, the research and construction of the new Argo (the 20 oar galley), the voyage, the archaeology and the history.
Joe White
It was very difficult to row ancient boats. It is difficult to raise a crew for such a boat, and the logistics are demanding. Foreign nations around the Black Sea create complications. Tim Severin made a very goos case for his route being the basis for Jason and the Argonauts.

I think I possibly would have appreciated this more if I had more of an understanding of sailing/rowing terminology, and unfortunately this kindle edition was plagued with proofing errors. But overall, an enjoyable read combining modern seafaring and ancient history.

Interesting. Did not know up to now that someone in modern times made the same voyage as the Argonauts...I may read some of his other books on similar adventures.
