The Olympias is a full-size replica of an ancient Greek Trireme warship, co-designed by John Coates, naval architect and historian and one of the founders of the modern BRLSI. This video shows Olympias undergoing sea trials in 1990. It was shot by Christopher Miles, and features a commentary written by John Coates and read by his son Julian. Edited for BRLSI by Paul Stephens.
This video will be shown at a BRLSI lecture on Greek Triremes by Professor Boris Rankov (who appears in the video) on 11th October 2011. Visit www.brlsi.org (choose 'Poster Gallery') for more details.
