This work by Elisa Costa, the first volume of this new series, offers an overview of the topic of covering wooden hulls from ancient times to the modern era in order to make the hull watertight and protect the wood. The topic is addressed through the study of both archaeological and historical sources: while the former allow us to study the evolution of hull protection and waterproofing systems, the latter document the workers employed in the exploitation of resources, in the processing of pitch and hemp and in waterproofing techniques.
